Throughout his journey, Vetea has held a deep admiration for riders who demonstrate excellence across various styles, showcasing their prowess in diverse conditions.
Vetea endeavours to fuse freestyle, strapless, and wave riding, infusing each with a distinctive touch of style. His attention is particularly drawn to the challenge of conquering big waves, setting it as a personal goal. For Vetea, the adrenaline rush experienced in those critical moments adds an electrifying dimension to the sport, enhancing the overall thrill of the adventure.
