Kyuss King was a standout in R1 and looked like a sure-bet, but couldn't find the right waves in his R2 heat and went down. Jake Marshall, John Mel, Nolan Rapoza, Kei Kobayashi, among others, all totaled high heat scores for the day in the JuniorFish division and we look forward to seeing what they can bring tomorrow for the final day of competition!

The ProAmFish division was explosive with hot performances by Yago Dora, Taylor Curran, Griffin Colapinto, Jake Kelley, Colin Moran, William Aliotti, Miguel Tudela, and more.

There was exciting high-performance surfing in the GirlFish division today in their Quarterfinal heats with some nail-biting finishes. Alyssa Spencer was a sure stand-out, while Caroline Marks, Kahanu Delovio, Kirra Pinkerton, and Shelby Detmers all grabbed two great heat scores to get them through to the semi finals.
