Yesterday we saw another non-stop day of heats as both the men and women wrapped up the single eliminations during nine hours of competition.
The run of insane conditions continued with Ponta Preta delivering absolutely pumping waves reaching double overhead and above.
The main stories of the day? Well Mitu Monteiro scored a perfect 10, Moona Whyte made an epic return to competition and James ‘Storm Boy’ Carew underlined how much of a true force of nature he really he is by making it to the final against Mitu. That’s just some of what went down. Here’s a few highlights.
