Stu Kennedy has finished 2nd at the Red Nose Pro Florianopolis in Brazil. He had been a standout surfer throughout the event, taking down top surfers before succumbing to Silva in the Final. With his result today, Stuey jumped into 10th place on the QS rankings.

"You always feel a little disappointed when you get so close to winning an event, but Deivid was very patient during the entire heat, while I tried to keep busy and apply pressure on him. It ended up not working because he got the waves. It’s been a long day, I surfed four heats, so I’m pretty proud of myself. I definitely needed the money and the points. So I’m still happy with the result."

"You never know what can happen in those next few events. I hope I can do well in the next one (Itacaré) and then get a 5th or better in Maresias or hopefully win one."

My sincere thanks to our team & supporters also to my partner in crime Snelly & a HUGE pat on the back goes to Blake’sG for his “punching above he’s weight” performance as our Judge!! He came along as a supporter of the team but when I asked him to Judge for us he did so without a complaint & what an accolade he was picked in the top 8 of the 16 Judges!!!!

Mikey also made the Final at the Maroubra event. Congratulations mate.
