Brazil's silver surfers take to the waves

23 April 2014 Last updated at 00:15 BST

Fusae Nishida Uramoto is a retired 84-year-old living in the port city of Santos in the south of Brazil.

Each week she joins other pensioners on the beach to take part in their favourite hobby - surfing.

When Brazilian surf 'star' Cisco Arana retired, he set up the school with the aim of using surfing as a tool for social inclusion.

Fusae was one of the school's first pupils.

BBC News went to meet her and some of the other silver surfers of Santos.

Real Time is a series for the BBC News website in which ordinary people tell their own extraordinary stories.

Video journalist: Gibby Zobel
