Do You Recognize This Young Female Brazilian Surfer?

Bela Nalu has been a travel TV star for years.

Words by stab

Since she was born, Bela Nalu has traveled the world with her parents experiencing unfamiliar landscapes, contrasting cultures, and perfect waves.

Her family has their own Brazilian travel tv show, Nalu Pelo Mundo, which first aired in 2009 and is currently on its 10th season.

Bela’s upbringing is extraordinary and is probably why she considers herself to be half-Brazilian, and half “from the world.” Being on the move and surfing various waves has gifted her a unique style compared to most other 14-year-old surfers. Her passport includes stamps from Hawaii (US), Indo, and after Vans Stab High, Central America, presented by Monster Energy, Costa Rica.
