Some exciting stuff going on in the second round, Nik Baker scoring a massive pushloop and Levi a big Backloop. These two now meet in the next round. Robbie Swift overcame his injury doubts to beat fellow brit Phil Horrocks.
Possibly the closest round of the day was between Boujama Guillol and Kauli Seadi. Both matching each other. Boujama scoring a decent pushie and backloop on the same running, and then crashing out on a super tweaked table top. Kauli answered with a perfectly executed pushie table top. Both scored good waves, with Kauli throwing some spray. Kauli just edged it with the judges.
In other heats Skye took out pearch, with planing forwards and good wave selection where he milked waves for all of their worth. Pearch gybed onto a really big wave but crashed out halfway through the ride.
McKercher silenced doubters and beat windsurfing whiz kid Campello with his usual style. Campello was trying to do shakas off the lip and kept crashing, McKercher remained solid as ever. Both Pritchards remained solid with big jumps and waves.
The next round sees both Kevin and Matt Pritchard taking each other on. Ross Williams who sailed amazingly to beat Alex Mousalini (who finished 4rd here last year) faces Mousilmani and has got to be favourite for that one.
Now it is the ladies round, Jaggi and Reichman winning against competitors Lucy Robson and Angoula who put in a gutsy performance in their first PWA competition. Nayra Alonso was made an uncharacteristic early exit under the hands of Nishada.
