Surf Hardware is very pleased to announce a new addition to the FCS Team.

Adriano De Souza is the reigning World Junior Champion and he’s been quietly making quite a name for himself the last year or so. Last January in Narrabeen Australia he shocked the world by winning the title at the age of 16 while competing against the worlds best juniors some 4 years older than he.

This Summer Adriano took down the US Open Junior title in Huntington against some very formidable competition including defending champion Kekoa Bacalso. Adriano also turned a few heads last month at the Vans Triple Crown event, surfing with power and contest savvy beyond his years in solid 8 to 10 foot Haleiwa.

“We are stoked to work with Adriano. He’s going to be a key part of our South American program and he is a perfect representative for the bright future of Latin American surfing.
