Kolohe Andino defeated Caio Ibelli to claim the Allianz Billabong Pro Cascais 2015, in Guincho Beach, Portugal.

The Californian surfer opened his account with a backhand ride of 7.67 points and backed it up with an excellent 8.90. The Brazilian was left with a few minutes and in need of a high-scoring wave.

"The tide dropped a lot, and it was really hard to find the right waves, but I was patient and got that eight, so I'm stoked," expressed Kolohe Andino.

"My arm was kind of cramped up when I was duck diving, I'm so exhausted the paddle outs were ridiculous. Now, I'm on tour pretty much guaranteed, so hopefully I can surf the two events coming up freely."

Andino is now ranked fourth in the Qualification Series (QS) while Ibelli climbs further on the rankings and still has a shot in the qualification race for the World Surf League 2016.

"I'll be waiting for an official confirmation from the WSL but making the CT is my biggest dream, and when I do receive confirmation I'll probably cry a little, this is everything I've ever wanted," added Caio Ibelli.
