Miguel Pupo got barreled out of his mind for a week straight to win the 26th annual ASP PRIME Hang Loose Pro at Fernando de Noronha, Brazil. In an all-Brazilian final, Pupo defeated Jean da Silva and took home $40,000 and 6,500 points to put him at the top of the 2012 ASP World Rankings. Puerto Rican Brian Toth also felt right at home in the hollow, clear-water peaks, finishing equal third. Big shout out to both surfers who are now are now sitting 1st and 4th respectively in the ASP World Rankings.
