Film_2018.05_Tenerife_23.jpg

hugo schwayze

The fountain of youth personified. Was forged in the fiery magma chamber of Tenerife's Teide volcano and subsists only on sunlight, water, and the professionally-cleaned smiles of her closest friends.

JogoMember_06_Frank.jpg

Franky midnight

Coolguy Canadian, Frank the Tank. Has a strong on-field connection with Wiebke. Easily the most stylish player on JBSC.

JogoMember_08_Talor.jpg

talor gruenwald

Colombian national champion, 2017. Though he has every right to be proud of that accomplishment, the dual shame of the infamous Lexi/McCarren and Jules/Tenerife sky-pwns will haunt him forever.

JogoMember_07_Kara.jpg

kara neaton

American. The foremost legal expert on Jogo Bonito. Stern, but fair. One of 18 siblings, or something like that.

JogoMember_09_Betti.jpg

Jogo Bonito Surgeon General. 80s fitness icon. German national team, heard of it?

JogoMember_10_Schuie.jpg

rob schumacher

A math prodigy from the day he was born in the quaint British burgh of Nether Picklescott, Rob managed to win the prestigious Fields Medal at the age of 7 by inventing the concept of "zero," the hitherto unknown number before "one."

JogoMember_12_Piotrek.jpg

piotrek WOJCIECHOWSKI

Our Polish attaché. Once upon a time lived in Berlin before moving to Austria to start a most radical new job at Red Bull. The move has been professionally rewarding, but Piotrek desperately missed Berlin.

JogoMember_16_Vlad.jpg

Having fled his native Russia as a political dissident, Vlad is eager to improve his American English and can often be heard saying things like "that's dope" and "hold me back" and "Donald Trump".

JogoMember_15_Alex.jpg

alexandra list

A professional rock climber, Alex had to seek written permission from her sponsor Patagonia to resume playing frisbee.

JogoMember_29_Patrao.jpg

Patrão

As you stand on the windy shores of Tenerife, you catch a glint in your eye in the west. Your eyes dart up to the treacherous turns of the narrow mountain passes where the orange-red glow of the sunset reflects off the motorcycle helmet of a rugged daredevil speedily hugging the curves. You watch, hypnotized, as the graceful rider slowly grows in your field of vision. He alights beside you, kisses you on the cheek, pours you a glass of red wine, takes the frisbee from your clammy, nervous hands and throws it upwind into the mouth of the volcano. You've just had the exquisite pleasure of meeting Patrão.

JogoMember_28_Dasha.jpg

Darya salnikova

Darya began her life on a remote yogurt farm in the cold, Siberian wilderness. But her ambition and adventurousness could not be contained by the desolate tundra. Using focused warm-ups, diligent stretching, and custom-painted nails, she rose the ranks to become CFO of a multinational yogurt conglomerate. In her free time, you can find Darya flying 7000km to volcanic islands to play frisbee with strangers-turned-friends.

JogoMember_17_Lexi.jpg

lexabelle james

The living embodiment of the phrase "shooters gonna shoot," Lexi strikes fear in the hearts of opponents and teammates alike with her reckless yet effective flick huck. Her grip-it-and-rip-it style took her all the way to the finals of USAU nationals which, have we mentioned, she won.

JogoMember_18_Sam.jpg

sam shepard

Sam has the impressive distinction of being the hardest body on a team of hard-bodies. His rugged good looks and surfer style have served him well from the nail-strewn beaches of Wildwood to the scorching hot sands of Santa Marta.

JogoMember_19_Maria.jpg

maria immer

A second opinion never hurts. That's why Maria joins Betti as Jogo's official Co-Surgeon General. In her professional opinion, surgery would be advisable.

JogoMember_20_Nick.jpg

nick dousset

The Pwner from Down Under, Nick brings his funny Australian accent and booming voice to the Jogo sideline. Nick will play a few points, complain that his groin is hurting him and then sit out until the final.

martin cronacher

German. Raised on a farm in some dorf. According to a Beach Worlds livestream I watched, Martin is a "charismatic leader on the field" and "captain and coach of Wall City, a rising team in Germany."

JogoMember_21_Nadine.jpg

The original Grip It and Rip ItTM cutter, Nadine is both the strongest and most daring Jogo member.

JogoMember_24_Basti.jpg

basti spiegel

Though his Xing profile says that he's a lowly investigator at the Bundespolizei, Basti is in fact a real life Jason Bourne with no less than 10 passports and skills too dangerous to mention.

JogoMember_31_MaryPaz.jpg

Mary paz concepción

Influencer that she is, MPC is the first member of Official Friend Team Guayota to jump ship and join Jogo Bonito. Many more are soon to follow—starting with Maiky and Fenny—leading to the eventual collapse of the Tenerife beach dynasty at the hands of Jogo Bonito.

Oil man, water boy.
