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