Finally event organisers realised we wanna see cooking barrels instead of choppy pap walls being ridden by the world's best surfers....and moved the event down to the road to the infamous Box. Think Kalk Bay reef on steroids. Super shallow gnarly reef that will hand out beatings to all comers.
Quite a tricky one for Jordy Smith - first time he'd ever surfed there and it was in a heat he had to win! Luckily he made it through his Rd 5 clash and now meets Bede again. He lost to Bede in the 3 man Rd 4 no-loser heat. Gonna be a tough quarterfinal for our man, cos Bede knows the Box pretty well, and Jordy only just popped his cherry there.
Kerrsy took out fellow Aussie Yadin Nicol in a heat blessed with some smokers. Josh meets brazzo high-flyer Medina in his QF. Parko rides a barrel better than most and took out Filipe Toledo....only to end up with a heat against Kelly. Might be a big heat in the greater scheme of things if you're looking at 2 guys who hope to be in the world title race at the end of the year.
