Lucas Chianca Breaks Down Happiest Year Of His Life, Lil Bro Joao On CT Plus 3 Big Wave Nominations

  • by

Big Wave surfer and Red Bull Big Wave Awards nominee Lucas “Chumbo” Chianca joins the podcast to talk about the happiest year of his life. He discusses his big 2022 that included the birth of his first daughter, watching his brother Joao compete on the Championship Tour, and being the only man nominated for all three categories of the 2022 Red Bull Big Wave Awards. He looks back at his road from the small town of Saquarema to the peak of the sport, the mentors like Carlos Burle who influenced him along the way, the local waves that first prepared him for Nazare, Jaws, and Mavericks, and his breakthrough performance at the 2017 Nazare event. He dives into the tight-knit Big Wave community, the strong bond of surfers in the water, and the athletes like Kai Lenny, Justine Dupont, Billy Kemper, and Joao Macedo who have inspired him to raise his game. Lucas also touches on his goals for the next season, working on the “Why We Go” Red Bull series, what he thinks about in the water during a massive swell, and tips for paddling into waves at Teahupo’o.
