Byron Bay’s favourite son Kieren Perrow (pictured) advanced directly to Round 3 of the RipCurl Pro Portugal at Supertubos, Peniche on Saturday.

In excellent barrelling conditions Perrow defeated fellow Aussie (two-time ASP World Champion and 2012 World Title contender) Mick Fanning in Round 1 by the smallest of margins. Perrow posted a heat total of 6.70 points to the 6.67 (both out of a possible 20.00) set by Fanning to advance directly into Round 3 of competition.

The Rip Curl Pro Portugal is Stop No 8 of 11 on the ASP World Championship Tour and includes the World’s Top 32 surfers plus two wildcards. Brazilian Adriano De Souza is the defending champion while Joel Parkinson is the current ratings leader.
