Samuel Pupo // Brazil // 3:10

Brazilians seem to come out of nowhere. Adriano de Souza waltzed his way onto tour and became a force to be reckoned with. Gabriel Medina was nobody until he dropped 2 tens in front of the entire WCT at the Quiksilver King of the Groms in France. Buffalo Bill Cardosa walked barefoot out of the great northern woods, stole Oliver Kurtz’s surfboard and started scalping guys. But Sammy Pupo, we see you coming. Miguel cued us in on the vast talent of his younger brother. :59 is an earnest effort from Sam, but it takes more than that to fool us. However, that combo at 1:57 would devastate the Junior Pro series -- once he gets old enough of course.
