Itacoatiara Pro Trials Complete – Sergio Luis Wins!

Day 3 of the IBA Itacoatiara Pro sponsored by Pride, Useque.com and NET saw the completion of trials in challenging 4-6 foot (1.5-2 meter) waves, deciding the top seven trialists who will face the top 24 and wildcards in the main event. Brazil’s Sergio Luis came out on top today, winning the trials final and earning himself a valuable 2000 points towards his 2012 GQS campaign. Luis will face Ryan Hardy (AUS), Guilherme Tamega (BRA) and fellow trialist Guilherme Correa (BRA) in GSS Heat 6 of Round 1.
