Welcome to the Traktor Team Samuel Pupo.

Sammy’s been coming here to the Gold Coast since he was 9 years old, and ever since, has been dreaming of winning the contest at Snapper. After working occasionally with his legendary older brother and having immense respect for their entire family, it made a lot of sense for us to test the waters and see how this surfer / shaper relationship would play out… and what a way to start in our backyard!

After riding a few boards at Bells and Margaret River, Sammy came to the Gold Coast with the goal to requalify for the WCT through the Challenger Series. He caught fire quickly, flairing in the opening rounds on a new magic Monsta 10 that he rode throughout the contest and eventually all the way to the podium. At that point everyone saw it coming, but it’s time to make this official… Welcome to the Traktor Team Sammy!
