Title: Surfer

Description: Meet Rafael Carrillo (age 28).  Everybody calls him Vocho.  Vocho is a big guy.  Solid muscle.  An animal in the water.  An all around cool guy.  But he eats and drinks a lot.  His favorite maneuvers are snaps and cutbacks.  The bigger the wave, the better.  He surfs a 5’8” shortboard that is as thin as a sheet of paper.  He speaks a little bit of English but understands even more.

Watch Vocho surf:
