Flying the Flag
Michel Bourez of Tahiti has won the Billabong Rio Pro defeating Kolohe Andino (USA) in the final by 13.84 to 10.93 (both out of 20.00) on Monday May 12, 2014. Bourez's victory marks his second victory on the ASP World Tour in the 2014 season after he clinched the Drug Aware Pro in Margaret River earlier this year. „My goal was to fly the flag until the end of the event. And then I got in the zone and went heat by heat. You need to take whatever comes to you. It's amazing! I didn't expect to win when I woke up this morning, but I'm super happy now!"
