Sebastian Williams has taken out the 2015 Quiksilver King of the Groms, in Fernando De Noronha, Brazil.

The super final had ten contestants surfing in paradise. They were invited to impress the judging panel with fun factor, progressive surfing and creativity in the waves. The winner would cash in $20,000.

The organization chose two different spots - Cacimba do Padre and Boldró - and there were two days of trials and four finalists: Sebastian Williams, Miguel Pupo, Vitor Mendes, and Kael Walsh.

The 15-year-old Californian surfer living in South Africa stormed the competition with a flawless aerial surfing performance in the Brazilian island. Williams was ecstatic with the victory.

"Words don't describe how stoked I am, after three days of amazing waves and fun times with the best crew! Thank you everyone that made this possible. Still can't believe this happened," expressed Sebastian Williams.

The 2015 Quiksilver King of the Groms also awarded Malakai Martinez (Expression Session), Kian Martin (Best Rail Move), Sandon Whittaker (Best Combo), and Samuel Pupo (Best Air).
