The best surfer of all time showed once again why he is undoubtedly the king of the waves. The american sportsman reached the third round of the Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2012 (follow the action live here). He won heat number 5 with 13,67 points, beating that way Damien Hobgood and Dillon Perillo.
Who also reached the third round was John John Florence, world´s number 4, by leaving out of competition fellow american Pat Gaudaskas and aussie Kai Otton.
In the first days of competition, and because the sea was not providing the best of conditions, surfers made a freesurf session in Supertubos, one of the best spots in the portuguese coast. Check it out.
