Adriano De Souza just won the Rip Curl Pro, Bells Beach, beating Nat Young in the final. After a 25th at Snapper, Adriano bounced back to scoop his fourth world tour victory. “This is the most important event on tour to me,” said Adriano. “Guys like Andy Irons, Kelly Slater, my hero Mick Fanning, they have all rung the Bell. I have been coming here a lot of years. I love the place. It has been a tough time for me recently. I started 2013 without a sponsor for the first time in many years. I had to believe in myself that a company would believe in me and one did. I have to say thanks to Pena for believing in me. I have a lot of people to thank, but all I want to do right now is ring the bell.”

For Nat, it’s his second event as a world tour surfer, and his first final. “It was a huge event for me,” said the Californian. “Just to be in the field is a dream for me. I’ve looked up to the surfers in this event my whole life. The event has such a history behind it and I was honestly just excited to be here. Making the Final, I don’t even have words for it. Of course I wanted to win it. I want to ring the bell as much as anyone else on tour. Don’t get to it this year, but a Runner-Up finish is a big result for me and I’ll take that into the next one.”
