About Pedro

Barros dominates park/bowl comps. That's especially true at X Games, where he's never finished worse than in the silver medal position in his 8 XG SKB Park appearances, taking 5 gold. The complete package: appealing style, power no other bowl skater can match, amplitude and technical tricks. He's one of the most popular action sports athletes in Brazil, with a personal bowl in his backyard that includes a street course which has become the epicenter of skating in his hometown of Florianopolis. Started the Lay Back Beer company in 2014; his dad (and best friend), Andre, is VP of Marketing.
