Jordy cruised slower than the morning’s white shark on his first wave, then fell when the wave didn’t push back.

That’s twice in three days a big white has cruised through the lineup here at J-Bay, today’s shark causing the event be put on hold for half an hour during the first quarterfinal.

Wade’s problem was that the ocean then stopped, and by the time it came back to life he had he’d been sitting there so long he fell on his first turn. And that was it.

Toledo’s first wave in his semi was followed immediately by a text from Surfing World editor Mike Jennings simply saying, “I love Filipe Toledo“.

It looked like Carmichael was toast until Toledo fell on his second wave and Carmichael monstered the wave after.

Julian didn’t start any better, and it wasn’t till the first real sets of the day moved the wave out off the point that anything got rolling.

“Nicole” – after Nicole Kidman – was the name of the first tagged great white shark tracked between Africa and Australia, proving the existence of a migration route across the Indian Ocean.

The kid’s bottom turn was a string line from a fixed point, and he’d be a handful for Toledo. “Jordy, you biscuit”.

Toledo had won J-Bay for the second time, equalling Parko and Jordy if you will, a J-Bay made man.

He floated his first turn, but if you’re going to float you need to go big and Carmichael almost floated onto the wave behind.
