Rafael Teixeira has taken out the Vans Surf Open Acapulco, at Playa Revolcadero, in Mexico.

The spot located near Acapulco delivered clean four-to-five-foot waves for the finals. With 1,000 Qualifying Series points up for grabs, the ocean offered the ideal conditions for competitive surfing.

The final pitted Rafael Teixeira, from Brazil, against French rising star Diego Mignot. Teixeira, who had already won a QS event, managed to put Mignot in combo-land and stole the show.
