Three-time and current world champion Mick Fanning of Australia finished second in Heat 4 of the opening round behind Hawaii’s Sebastian Zietz. Last week at Portugal’s Cascais Pro, Fanning was knocked out of the competition by Jonathan Gonzalez of the Canary Islands. Brazil’s Jadson André was the overall winner of the Cascais Billabong Pro at Carcavelos Beach, beating out Australian Stuart Kennedy in the final by 5.63 points. Jadson was also the winner at Carcavelos in 2013.

André addressed the crowd at the event ceremony:

Oh man, it feels great! I don’t really know what to say, I just want to say thank you guys for everything, you have made my life, thanks everyone here for the support. I was paying a lot of attention during the expression session before the Final, and I saw the tide was getting lower, so I was sticking to my game plan of catching a lot of waves and keep building scores, and I’m so stoked that it worked out.

—Jadson André
