The Brazilian Storm has taken control of the surfing world. One year after Gabriel Medina, the hard-working man claims his moment of glory with a maiden World Surf League title and a victory in the prestigious Billabong Pipe Masters.

Adriano de Souza has lived the best day of his entire surfing career. He is the number one because he deserves it. Sometimes, pictures speak for themselves and, in Adriano's case, it is quite obvious why he got so emotional.

Take a look at the best shots from the last day of competition at the Pipe Masters. The 17th December 2015 will forever be written in De Souza's heart. It was his day and a glorious date for the Brazilian surf fans.
