We are so proud of Raoni Monteiro for winning at Sunset Beach and taking the second jewel in The Triple Crown competing against a totally stacked field of competitors and solidifying himself in Brazillian surf history. In fact, he is the fisrt of his countrymen men to win here in 19 agonizing years, and you can bet they are celebrating overseas. With the win, Raoni now looks poised to make the WCT and compete with the cream of the crop in 2011. Congrats Raoni, and please, save some champagne for us!
