In a thrilling finale, California local Griffin Colapinto scored his first Championship Tour win of the year at the 2023 Surf Ranch Pro. Battling it out with Brazilian sensation Italo Ferreira in the final heat, Colapinto posted a stellar score of 17.77 against Ferreira’s 17.13. It was a close contest with both surfers pulling off near-perfect waves.
The road to victory was no easy feat. In the quarterfinals, Colapinto outperformed Yago Dora with a heat score of 14.67 to Dora’s 9.43. Then, in the semifinals, he bested Filipe Toledo, the pre-event favorite, posting a heat score of 15.60 against Toledo’s 14.10.
It’s also worth highlighting Ethan Ewing’s incredible and unexpected performance. Ewing, who had the seventh-highest pre-event odds, achieved a remarkable victory over three-time World Champion Gabriel Medina in the quarterfinals. Ewing’s powerful surfing propelled him to overcome the seasoned competitor and deliver one of the biggest upsets of the day. Both surfers ended the round with identical heat scores of 16.67, but Ewing advanced to the semis since he earned the highest individual wave score (9.07).
This year’s Surf Ranch Pro tournament was an epic showdown that left a lasting impression on surfers and fans alike. The perfect waves of Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch provided an incredible canvas for the surfers to showcase their talent, and they certainly did not disappoint. Now onto the bets!
