Rio Waida

Rio Waida

  • Date Of Birth: 1/25/2000
  • Hometown: Bali, Indonesia

It’s hard not to get the feels when hearing the story of Rio Waida. He grew up in poverty in Indonesia and was stunned by a medical condition at an early age. Rio found peace in surfing. Peace, and victory. On the surf-obsessed island of Bali, Rio began to rise above his generation. Something about his surfing was different - he had more purpose in it. Eventually, he got sponsored and was able to properly treat his medical condition. Shortly thereafter, he made his breakout official by winning the Quiksilver Young Guns Surf event in 2016. Rio just keeps on rising up. Mostly because that’s the only direction he knows.
