Kolohe Andino, Mike Dunphy and Ev Geiselman, Kangaroo Island

If Kolohe Andino was unsure about making the dream tour a coupla weeks ago, he definitely has nothing to worry about now. After winning two six-star events in Brazil, back to back, Stab posed to Kolohe that he’s now a world tour surfer. But at that point, he wasn’t completely sold: “That’s what the ASP wrote, but I don’t know if it’s true. I’m 24th now and the lowest my total can be is, like, 21,600. If I don’t keep my result or if I lose first heat in Santa Cruz then I think it’ll work. But yeah, I’m not sure, guys could blow up, anything could go wrong. It can happen, it’s the ocean you’re dealing with. But I’m stoked with where I’m at right now.”
Kolohe didn’t lose first heat in Santa Cruz – he made the third round. And, he just won the Fantastic Noodles Kangaroo Island Pro. Welcome to the party, Kolohe.
