The Jiu-Jitsu Community & Acai Bond

In the 1960's, the famous Gracie jiu-jitsu family recommended eating Acai before and after workouts due to the fruit benefits. The Gracie family are considered the original masters of the blend, started blending Acai with banana and guarana. Since then, it has gone from a training secret to a daily ritual for all the jiu-jitsu athletes, surfers and all health conscious people in Brazil and around the world. Read more

Vitor Hugo’s skate park initiative

The Amazon Power ambassador Vitor Hugo has taken part in an international initiative to make the world a healthier, happier place. In 2014, Vitor and a group of friends visited beautiful Siargao Island, in The Philippines. This island is a popular surf destination, however its community is impoverished. With the helping hands of Vitor and his friends, they built a skate park to benefit the children of this disadvantaged island.

They have filmed a short documentary which shows their visit to Siargao Island, the local community, and the building of the skate park. They intend to release this documentary online, and raise funds to make a return trip to the community of Siargao Island to continue their work.

He won gold with Mick DiBetta and Chris Maynard in the 130+ years board relay, and bronze in the 130+ years taplin relay with team mates Mick DiBetta and Daniel Cowper.

Michael’s outstanding competition results speak for themselves. His athletic prowess is a testament to his healthy and active lifestyle – powered by Amazon Power acai.

Jordy Lawler Going Big!

When people talk about surfing in South-East Asia, they invariably mean one of Indonesia’s 17,000 islands and their respective, wave-blessed coastlines. Almost 3000km north, Taiwan is one of surfing’s newest Oriental frontiers, and the industrious island already plays host to a WQS event – the Taiwan Open of Surfing. Top honours at the event’s 2014 incarnation went to North Narrabeen’s Jordy Lawler, where he was up against surfers from Indonesia, Japan and even a 14-year-old from Hong Kong with the fittingly unique moniker of Wolf. People often say that getting there is half the fun, but for one of Jordy’s first outings against the wolves of the ’QS, getting to Taiwan was an absolute bloody mission.
