Coming from the wave rich town of Cascais, just outside Portugal’s capital of Lisbon, Frederico "Kikas" Morais is one of the hottest prospects in European surfing.
2012 was his last year in the junior ranks and the stylish naturalfooter capped an exceptional year, coming fifth in the ASP World Junior Titles event in Bali.
Morais won the 2013 Rookie of the Triple Crown title by placing fourth in the Vans World Cup of Surfing at Sunset Beach, Hawaii. Frederico is only the second Portuguese surfer to achieve this feat after Tiago Pires in 2000.
