 From Rip Curl:

Jobos Beach, Puerto Rico (May 28, 2005) - Puerto Rico's finest groms came out to Jobos Beach to compete in the first regular season stop of the 2005 Rip Curl GromSearch Tour proudly presented by Nintendo. A perfect Caribbean setting produced luminescent skies, crystal clear waters and unexpected 4-5 ft waves. The epic surf conditions had competitors and contest officials alike baffled as surf forecasters called for only minimal 1-2 ft. surf throughout the Memorial Day weekend. Local groms took advantage of the pumping surf conditions by lighting up the draining right-handers that peeled across Jobos reef. After hours of intense competition Rip Curl's GromSearch was able to bring forward the front line of Puerto Rico's future surfing stars!

Jobos local, Rafael Ferreira, took on Christian Candela for the GromSearch 16 & Under title. Jorge came out of the gates with a 6.5 heat opener; however, Christian quickly answered back on a workable left corner. Rafael put his local knowledge to work becoming a wave machine throughout the remainder of the final. Christian remained patient and took over with his backside attack, going completely vertical on numerous manuevers. In the end it was Rafael with a hard earned 2nd place finish and Christian Candela taking the win!

Athletic roots and history. 

Rafael's athletic success and the love for sports, fits with his family's background. He enjoys the complete support of his family in the sport of surfing. His mother, Carmen B. Brown, was a track and field athlete in the University, volleyball player, swimmer and still surfs daily. His father Higinio "Gino" Ferreira, use to play in the junior league Baseball Team, Track and field athlete, surfing, parachutist, brown belt in Isshin Ryu Karate, paintball and other sports. Rafael took his first swimming lessons at the age of 6 in Cupey, PR, and earned his blue belt in Yoshukai Karate, at the age of 9 in Trujillo, PR.  At school Rafael has participated in basketball, Soccer, volleyball and other sports. In baseball he won the MVP title, with "Los Paseos White Sox" finals, and was selected to participate in a baseball seminar reserved only for the best player at Dominican Republic. Rafael represented Puerto Rico at the 2003 World Cup in Orlando, Florida in Paintball, and was selected as MVP of the team.  In 2004, Rafael represented his school "Nuestra Señora Del Carmen" in track and field and javelin at the school Olympics.


The Sport he really loves.

At only 11 years old, he decided to learn Surfing, in search of the rush of surfing waves, and has been doing it since then. Now at 20, Rafael feels he's best in the water. He has participated in over 19 contests in Puerto Rico. His biggest goal in surfing is to become Pro, the number one surfer in Puerto Rico and the next Kelly Slater. His mother takes him every day after school to practice, and he studies at night. His father coaches him and takes photos and videos, to capture his movements, techniques and style, to study them and make his techniques better. Rafael keeps a good balance between sports and School. His professional goal is to become a Lawyer and a Professional Surfer.

In 2009

Actually, Rafael is 20 years old and is studying Astronomy and Atmospheric Science at the Polk County University in Florida.
