Pre zdôrazňuje: 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 a 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.
