WSL:”I almost drowned out there” – Adriano de Souza, Meo Ripcurl Pro

The definition of commitment by Adriano de Souza in todays conditions: Massive Barrels, Mindset and Medicine 

It was a tough day at the Meo Ripcurl Pro in Portugal! Four times overhead on some of the sets, rips, double ups, whitewater, as high as a two-story building and the heaviest barrels Supertubos has seen at a competition in a long time. Not only Mick Fanning was absolutely knackered and therefore understandably tight-lipped after his heats. Also former World Champ Adriano de Souza struggled to survive!

Take a deep breath and be well aware of how lucky you were, that you did not „have to“ paddle out there. Here´s the definition of today´s commitment, put together in photos and some words of Adriano, Mick could not find.
