Pro hoogtepunte: With the conditions pumping we managed to get through the first two rounds of the pro heats. With the winners of round 1 getting a bye into the 3rd round it really paid off to ‘go for it’. Taking these heats were Camille Juban, Levi Siver, Bernd Roediger en Kevin Pritchard. The move of the day was definitely Roediger’s massive head-dip aerial off a mast high point wave during his heat. The most innovative move not landed was Pritchard’s crazy Back Loop Off-the-lip… insane!

Pressure was on in round 2 as anyone not claiming first or second was now out of the competition. Russ Faurot’s massive aerial at the point helped him take Heat 5, while Casey Hauser also advanced. Jonah Lepak, a former west-coast top pro who has now jumped back onto the scene with his incredible riding style, won heat 6. Jake Miller also slashed his way into round 3 with some nice waves. Taking heat 7 was Morgan Noireaux with a nice mix of wave gouges and aerials, while Ferdinando Loffreda also advanced. The final heat saw Keith Teboul simply destroy the point waves for the win with Kevin McGillivray also riding incredibly well to advance. We are looking forward to round 3 today.

"Those were the biggest waves I’ve seen here in six years!” —Keith Teboul

Masters highlights: Rond 2 of the Masters division saw Jamie Crowley and Mike Colee come out on top of their heats putting in some tight slashy turns. Also advancing were Marty Rosse (despite sailing with stitches in his foot from the previous day) and Eric Sinclair.

Norm Roediger and Ferdinando Loffreda, who are both also competing in the Pro division, are really showing their wave prowess in these epic conditions. Roediger’s tight turns and Loffreda’s nice aerials allowed them to each take their heats in round 3. Also advancing to the semi-finals were Marty Rosse and Mike Colee with both continuing their solid performances. Roediger who patiently picked off the best set waves to score the most points took the semi-final. But Loffreda also advanced setting up and epic head-to-head final! Stay tuned for this result.
