Italo Ferreira came into this year’s MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal as the defending event winner with a target on his back, but once again rose up through the rounds to culminate on Finals Day with a performance for the ages claiming back-to-back wins in Peniche. With a huge air that became the only 10-point ride of the event, he not only took the win but also the Yellow Jersey. Italo will be heading into the final event of the year at Pipeline as World Number 1 to battle it out for his maiden World Title.
