Hometown: Haiku, Hawaii
Originally from Brazil, Livio resides on Maui year round where he has perfected the art of downwind paddling. His approach to paddling and life embraces the fun-loving spirit of his homeland, yet a strong competitive streak lies just beneath the surface. Livio knows how to harness the power of the ocean to the fullest and is seemingly able to extend his glide on a downwind bump with minimal effort. Off the water, he works full-time as a painter and is dedicated husband and father of an energetic young boy.
