Round of 96 Oneill coldwater Canada_Peter Devries in the am.
After a good night sleep i woke up with the message saying that the contes was going to start at 9am at Cox bay tofino.After last night bad surfing conditions heat 23rd got together and decided not to go in the water and then surf today first thing in the am.Contest director was not too happy about that but at the end everything went well.
It was a great first heat in the morning and our friend Shannon Brown ripped some great waves and advanced into the next round.Shannon is a great guy and super easy going.Tofino locals and crowd was super stoked to see him doing well and hopefully keep advancing into the main event.Peter Devries,Tofino sensation was waiting all day to go in the water but due to bad weather and bad visibility,contest director decided to make the call and have only two heats done of the round of 96.
The day was full of high scores in the 3 to 5 foot surfing conditions.Offshore winds were on all day making the waves look great.Some upsets and some stoked surfers,well, surfing competitions are like this.Only 50% of the 4 man heat advances,so some upsets are likely to happen.
Tomorrow morning wew ill have another call, and hopefully waves will be super fun again.
We have Peter Devries(Tofino local surfer) on the second heat in the am.
Come and check it out Pete showing how it is done.
