VIDEO: Check Miguel Pupo's world-title potential





Miguel Pupo shows off his title talent






Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 February, 2011 : - - Costa Mesa -- Youth lifestyle brand Hurley announced today that it signed one of Brazil’s most promising young talents, 19-year-old Miguel Pupo, to its team. 'You can count the number of 20-and-under surfers with world-title potential on one hand,' says Hurley’s VP of Sports Marketing Pat O’Connell. “And in my mind, Miguel is one of those surfers. On top of that, he’s a great kid and fits right in with our crew.”

“This is not only great for Brazil but great for surfing in general,” adds Hurley Brazil Brand Manager Valter Vale. “The Pupo family is surfing royalty here and I know that Miguel will add to that legacy.”

Pupo, son of former professional surfer Wagner Pupo, hails from the relatively isolated Camburi Beach in Sao Paulo’s North Coast. He regularly surfs with his father, sister and brother while his mother films them. It’s this family support system that has helped Pupo already make a big impact on the world stage.
