Ezekiel Lau claimed the 2017 EDP Billabong Pro Cascais title, after defeating Italo Ferreira in clean three-to-four foot surf at Praia do Guincho, the back-up venue in Cascais. In the final, both surfers got off to a slow start with medium scores, Ferreira leading the first exchange with a couple of forehand gauges on a clean little left. Lau opted for the forehand as well on a right but couldn’t complete his final maneuver. Facing tricky conditions, surfers decided to go to the air, and while the Brazilian fell on a few attempts, Lau managed to land a good tail whip for a 5.17 to momentarily take back the lead. He then quickly went back to his signature power carves and lay backs for a 6.67 and a stronger hold on the pole position.
