Adriano Wins the RIO PRO



Just like that Adriano De Souza is your 2x Rio Pro Champion!! Parabéns Mineirinho!!!

“The crowd was just waiting for the right moment to explode during the Final of this year’s Oi Rio Pro. Adriano de Souza provided it. After Ace Buchan dropped a 9.20 to close the gap on Adriano midway through their match, De Souza needed something big to back up what was left of his lead. Buchan had priority, too, which didn’t make things any easier for Adriano. But the 2015 World Champ found a gem while paddling back out, and started putting nails in the coffin.” –WSL
