Ricardo Augusto Dagua
Ricardo Augusto Dagua is a Brazilian open water swimmer and surfer from Camburi in the state of São Paulo.
On his last surfing trip to Fiji, his boat broke. He was too scared to wait for help that would probably never come so he decided to swim save himself. He swam for more than 4 hours without water or food and lived to tell his story. That self-save was a watershed moment for him when he started to do open water swimming. Swimming to Alcatrazes became his great physical and mental challenge.
