[part title=”More from day one…”]
This heat with Jamaer and Traversa is looking close, the waves are bowling through more now, and whilst the wind is looking a little flukey the riders are still looking comfortable on 3.7s and 4.2s. The waves are jacking up even more now, as Jamaer just avoids a massive close out.
Another heat comes to a close, Brawzinho has taken yet more solid wavs scores as well as getting another double too. things are looking close at the top and the waves are on the rise, looking like within the next hour or two the waves could get up to double mast high. All four riders so far have good jump scores and some very impressive waves in the bag, the plan is to keep go with more heats as the conditions improve.
Bruch links some good turns on a wave, but then gets taken down. Brawzinho gets some more incredible waves and late hits, plus gets a wet double in the bag on his jumps too.
Bruch and Browne are heading out for the next heat. Looks like Jamaer is feeling it after his massive wipe out in the previous heat. Jamaer hit the lip and got a massive aerial, before bailing at the last second, he landed on the water from 25 feet plus in the air and I sounds like he blacked out for a second and is now feelings little shaky on the land.
Browne looked absolutely on fire in his previous heat, scoring some high scores with his let turns right in the pocket of the wave. Up now Traversa and Jamaer are back out on the water, with Traversa again taking some massive hits and late turns, usually making it not in one piece. Browne seems to be enjoying the conditions saying some scary waves are coming through, the wind is still up and down making the sailing even trickier.
