Letícia Bufoni e Silva (born April 13, 1993) is a Brazilian professional street skateboarder. When Letícia was 14 she came to Southern California to compete in the X Games. During that trip, she was skating at Element Skate Camp and practicing a trick (an inward heel flip). Her dad said that if she landed it, she could stay in California. She got it right on the next try. She got sponsored and decided to remain in California. Both she and her family knew if she was to be world class she had to be in the heart of the action. She has been competing as a professional skateboarder ever since. She lives in Los Angeles, California and is fluent in both Portuguese and English. Leticia remains very close to her family and spends a few months each year in Brazil. Leticia has been ranked the #1 women’s street skateboarder by World Cup Skate four years in a row 2010-2013. In 2013, she became the only female athlete to win three X Games Gold Medals in the same year and was nominated for an ESPY Award.
