Kelvin Hoefler

Fast becoming one of the best contest skaters in the world, Kelvin Hoefler, age 21, comes from a tight family and humble beginnings in Guarujá, a beach city 65 miles east of São Paulo, Brazil.

Kelvin was first recognized at age 9 when he won his first skateboard contest in Brazil. When he was little, he only dreamed of traveling the world, meeting new people, and discovering new cultures and places.

With a lot of hard work, positivity, and perseverance, Kelvin started skateboarding professionally and has never stopped. He is a part of the next generation who are redefining skateboarding as he continues to travel, skate the streets filming and competing around the globe.

Highlights include an impressive Mag Minute for the Skateboard Mag, and in 2013, when he won the qualifiers at Dew Tour in San Francisco, while placing 2nd in the overall super finals televised live on NBC.

In 2014 he took home Street Session and Best Trick  Dew Tour Contest in Ocean City, Maryland.  A few months later in Portland Kelvin won Dew Tour Best Trick and placed 2nd in overall results.

Last Year Hoefler won Kimberley Diamond Cup in South Africa one of the most elite skateboarding contests out skating with Supercrown two-time world champion Nyjah Huston.

Kelvin currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
