Tipped for the top by the PWA tour pundits, local rippers Jose Romero (JP, NeilPryde) and Alessio Stillrich (Fanatic, North) sailed their home spot with perfection. They both had some of the longest rides of the day, milking the waves until their fins hit the rocks, gybing back out, and boosting some huge jumps to advance through to the next round with ease.
Heat 7 was a similar affair with the two locals, Josep Pons Casasnovas (Severne) and Francisco Casas Garcia (Starboard, Severne) comfortably tearing Pozo to pieces. Yann Sorlut (RRD, Simmer) put up a good fight against Pons Casasnovas, but the local nudged ahead with an awesome back loop, and high scoring wave which saw him claim the best overall score of the day. Bonairean freestyler, Tonky Frans (F2, Gaastra) nailed some stylish jumps in his heat against Casas Garcia, but couldn’t quite match the local in the riding department, allowing him to pass through to the top 32.
