Besides being global ambassadors for the brand, our athletes play a vital role at Cabianca Surfboards. It is their constant feedback from the water that allows us to continue to improve and innovate in the shaping room.


Gabriel Medina


Coming from the same surf-rich town of Maresias, Johnny and Gabriel started working together in 2009… and they’ve been making surfboards (and surfing history) together ever since. As Gabriel evolved into the world champion he is today, Johnny Cabianca is proud to have played a part in that evolution.


Rodrigo Saldanha


A younger cousin of ‘The Man’ – Gabriel Medina. Like many kids his age, Rodrigo dreams of becoming a pro surfer and hopes to follow in his cousin’s footsteps. He loves to surf, has got the talent and the boards… the rest is up to Rodrigo!

Keoni Lasa


Don’t be fooled by the shy, gentle smile: behind it lies the mental toughness of a true competitor. Whether he’s surfing the cold water of his home breaks in Northern Spain, or the perfect freshwater walls of his secret Basque training facility The Wavegarden… this kid is dangerous.

Sophia Medina


Life sure is interesting when you’re the little sister of Brazil’s favourite surf star… especially when you’re a social media A4:C11 at the grand old age of 11. So while little Sophia Medina is looking up to her big bro Gabriel, here at Cabianca surfboards we’re looking up to Sophia for her big smile, awesome attitude and unmistakeable surfing talent.
