When he isn't riding mountains of ocean, Brazilian Carlos Burle is being quirky!
So you want to ask one of Brazil's finest about his hidden talents. But when the telephone receiver is lifted from its cradle (old-school!), Mr Burle, of indeterminate age, but of the most sublimely polite manner, talks about all his fabulous quirks.
Now let's catalogue:
"I don't like any kind of peppers, especially bell-peppers," says Carlos.
"I sleep with two pillows and a fan on a lower speed."
"I eat yams with eggs, instead of bread, every morning."
"I have a salad dressing factory."
"I have a special shampoo for after surfing (L'Oreal)."
"I used to skip school to go surfing." Uh, that ain't so quirky, Carlos!
"I don't play any instruments but I like to sing and dance."
"My favourite kind of music to go surf is eighties rock."
"The name of my first dog was 'Bolota' (big ball)."
"I dream about flying a lot!!"
