Peterson Crisanto took full advantage of the clean 1-2 metre waves during the early stages of the day in heat 21 of the round of 96.

 

Crisanto paired together a 9.67 and an 8.50 for a combined two-wave score of 18.17, taking first position in front of Raoni Monteiro. 

 

“I feel so good, this is my second time in Ballito and the waves are pumping,” Crisanto said after his heat.

 

Caio Ibelli began strong in heat one of the round of 48 as he posted an 8.83 supported by a 6.77 for a final total of 15.60.

 

South African Jordy Smith came back from his second place finish in the round of 96.

 

Smith thrashed through the waves to combine an 8.23 and a 7.00 ride to win the heat with a final score of 15.23, advancing through to the round of 24.

 

Tackling the tough conditions, Julian Wilson showcased his powerful style in the water as he locked in a 9.87 followed closely by an 8.67.

 

Wilson finished the heat with a combined total of 18.54 and placed fellow Australian Dion Atkinson into a combination situation.

 

“It was tricky out there but there wasn’t much hassling going on and everyone got to surf their own heat, so it was good,” Wilson said.

 

The last heat of the round of 48 saw Filipe Toledo unleash another 9.43 ride supported by a solid 7.43 to finish with a high range two-wave score of 16.86.

 

Toledo took out first position in his heat and has advanced through to the round of 24 to battle against Mason Ho and Jean Da Silva.
