Filipe Toledo wins Sooruz Lacanau ProPosted 20 Aug 2012, by STABmag
Filipe Toledo, part of Brazil’s ever-growing new wave, just won the ASP five-star Sooruz Lacanau Pro. The 17-year old beat Jack Freestone in the final with a combined heat total of 17.53. Equal third were Dion Atkinson and, once again at the business-end of an event, Glenn Hall. “This is my best result so far for sure,” said Filipe. “I don’t have words to describe how I feel, it’s just amazing, unbelievable. I know Jack surfs pretty much like me and I tried not to do too much airs but you know you got to do what it takes to get the score.”
