Kolohe Andino wins the Fantastic Noodles Kangaroo Island Pro

As we said in today’s Full Frame, Kolohe Andino wasn’t totally sold on the whole “I’m-on-tour” thing, even after winning two back-to-back six-star events in Brazil. “That’s what the ASP wrote, but I don’t know if it’s true,” he told Stab. “I’m 24th now and the lowest my total can be is, like, 21,600.

As we said in today’s Full Frame, Kolohe Andino wasn’t totally sold on the whole “I’m-on-tour” thing, even after winning two back-to-back six-star events in Brazil. “That’s what the ASP wrote, but I don’t know if it’s true,” he told Stab. “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.”

This morning however, Kolohe elevated himself from ‘maybe’ to ‘definitely’, after winning another six-star event (his third consecutive!), the Fantastic Noodles Kangaroo Island Pro, in South Australia. “It feels kind of surreal right now,” he said. “Hopefully I can make the ASP World Title Series for next year now. I’m just competitive and want to win, I knew there was a lot of opportunity for me to do well here and I’m happy it went my way. With guys like Gabriel Medina winning events on tour, I just really want to get there. After he won that last event I just thought that I have to be on there too.”

Now it’s all but certain he’ll be firing down the point at Snapper in February. Imagine that.
