      He made 1 heat. In round 1 he stomped an incredible air, so he skipped round 2, but then he lost in round 3. He outperformed my claim by 1 heat. I will admit though, I was wrong about plenty at Bells. That’s common though.

    Thanks David for the quick response.

    Glad to see Filipe continues to look strong, but my surf team has also gone flat. Kelly and Filipe are the only people I got through to round 4. I was extremely excited to see Big Bells early in the day. Fun stuff to watch.

      I cant believe it but I say ADS’s first turn in round 4, heat 1, was the best turn of the contest.
      Can I borrow your brazil t-shirt Dave??
