Portugal’s leading male surfer, Frederico Morais, won the Azores Airlines Pro, part of the surfing qualification circuit, beating out Mitch Crews of Australia at the end of the competition on the Azores island of São Miguel.

‘Kikas’, as Morais is better known, secured 15.93 points (8.5 and 7.43) against 6.1 (4 and 2.1) for the Australian, clinching his second triumph of the year on the circuit, following his victory in the Pro Santa Cruz. That had brought him 3,000 points, against 6,000 from the Azores event, which bumped him up to 10th in the Qualifying Series ranking.

This was only the third QS win by Morais, who won the Martinique Pro in 2016 – the year he reached the finals of the Hawaiian Pro and the Vans World Cup.

On the world circuit, Morais’s best ever result was second at the Corona Open J-Bay in Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, in 2017.

On his way to the final in the Azores, ‘Kikas’ had knocked out France’s Gatien Delahaye in the semi-finals, Jake Marshall of the US, in the quarter-finals, and Australia’s Jackson Baker in the fifth round.
