Miguel Pupo solidified a Round One win over World No. 3 Matt Wilkinson and Australian Rookie Ryan Callinan with a critical air, earning an 8.17. The Brazilian is in a precarious spot on the Jeep Leaderboard, at No. 23. A solid result in the MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal could launch Pupo into the Top 22, which would guarantee him a spot on the 2017 Championship Tour.
