Italo Ferreira, the 2019 World Champion, has not been resting on his laurels. While he may have been kept out of a jersey this year, he's been dropping clip after hot clip, and the latest one does not disappoint.

Italo tackles some huge waves around Saquarema, in Rio de Janeiro with the help of a ski, stying in a silver Billabong wetsuit. We also get a cameo appearance from big wave star Lucas Chianca.

Italo also paddles into some slabs -- further quashing the myth that there's no heavy waves in Brasil -- and lets loose with some of the explosive, progressive surfing he's become famous for.

Few surfers are making the covid-19-related downtime look as fun as Italo, but we can't wait to see him back in a jersey very soon.
