Gato Heroi Trafficks Highly Illegal, Exotic Surf Fruit
Sip the mystery juice here.
Gato Heroi is an atelier of handmade surf fruits.
I will spare you searching what ‘atelier’ means, it is: a workshop or studio, especially one used by an artist or designer.
Gato Heroi has a mysterious website showcasing an inventory of likely illegal, exotic surf fruit trafficked from secret shaping bays around the globe.
Some have theorized Gato Heroi is actually Satoshi Nakamoto, owner of Bitcoin. Others have theorised Gato Heroi is in fact, Keyser Soze, the main antagonist in the 1995 film, ‘The Usual Suspects’.
In any event, Gato Heroi’s exotic surf fruits go rather well in small, flat waves, as demonstrated by Kai Ellice Flint riding the ‘Dagger’ at a highly secretive test location, potentially somewhere near Byron Bay.
Don’t doubt that Gato Heroi is even a real surfboard company. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn’t exist.
