Profile: Desire Like De Souza

A few months after conquering his childhood dream of becoming the WSL World Champion, Adriano de Souza visited friends and family in his humble hometown of Guarujá, in São Paulo, Brazil. WSL sent Brazilian Director Loic Wirth to capture what became a moving experience for all involved, as De Souza finally got to celebrate his incredible achievement with those who've known him the longest.

While not much has changed in Guarujá since he moved away, his friends and loved ones are dreaming bigger after taking in the lesson of his incredible feat. They were the first ones to realize that Adriano's accomplishments reach far beyond surfing.

As for De Souza, it's just one more reminder that a life of true meaning involves goals that are big, bold, and specific.
