Kikas had a total score of 13.46 points (7.33 + 6.13) in his two best waves, coming third and in last place in the Margaret River championship, behind Dora (14.66) and Cardoso (13.77), and in 33rd place in the event.

After two years of being part of world elite (2017 and 2018), Morais is competing in this qualification circuit, having entered the competition due to a spot left by injury, as he is one of the alternates for the tournament thanks to his score in last season.

Kikas is currently 23rd in the world qualification circuit, which gives him access to the main circuit, in which he was 14th in 2017 and 23rd in 2018.

The next stage of the world circuit will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 20 to 28 June.
