The Brazilian dominated his first round heat with the best score of the day (15:80).

"I've been out of the water for a week due to a knee injury. This is my first surf and I couldn't find the best waves out there, but I'm super happy to make my first heat in Zarautz and thank's to God my knee's feeling better now. My board feels good as well, it's an old one but my favourite and it goes great !" he said.

He moves into the last 96 of the tournament.
