    Pipo has been a legend in Puerto Rico since 1983, when he started competing and winning most local tournaments. The “Father of the Caribbean Jammers,” his quest for perfection drove him to start traveling to the USA looking for players with the same attitude.

    Selected as freestyle’s “Most Turbo” in 1998, Pipo has awesome flexibility, physical conditioning and technical knowledge. Pipo has been adding new moves to his vast repertoire every year. He is widely considered one of the best wind jammers in the world, able to control the disc and perform wonderful moves even when the wind gods send home everyone else.

    Pipo’s spirit draws out the best in others and jammers everywhere seek him out as a partner, teacher and friend. Pipo will be a top jammer for years to come. His work ethic, natural skills and vibe ensure it.
