Positivity will take you places. Just ask Jesse Mendes – or you can simply look at his track record. The wiry Brazilian has nabbed some huge results in his career, including a win at the Billabong Pro Cascais Prime event in 2016. He’s achieved success through reckless positivity, through a relentless amount of stoke. And he backs it up with fast and fluid surfing that’ll please any eye lucky enough to make contact with it. He’s has been tapping on the CT’s door for quite a while now. It’s only a matter of time before that door open up, Jesse strolls in and makes himself right at home.
