Rayssa Leal goes back to her Brazilian hometown and revisits spots and skateparks that helped shape her into the skater she has become and continues to grow into in this episode of Aspire-Inspire.

Rayssa Leal first came into the spotlight around seven years ago when a video of her doing a heelflip in a blue fairy costume became viral. Now, the Brazilian skater has come a long way.

Just last weekend, she won her first Street League Skateboarding Super Crown title at just 14 years old! She also won all the SLS Tour stops this year.

Before that, she was the youngest skater to win an SLS Stop at 11 in 2019. She even made it into second place in the Championships that year, and again in 2021. She won the silver medal in the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.

Aside from her SLS victory, she also earned her first X Games gold medal and won the STU Open this year.

Aspire-Inspire is a mini-documentary series by Monster Energy. Previous episodes featured Mami Tezuka, Aurelien GiraudKelvin HoeflerRune GlifbergAyumu Hirano, Nyjah Huston, and Matt Berger.
