A weird start for the 8th and last day of the contest from down here at Playa Colorados. This morning all the action began at 8am and the conditions were not the best but there were still some fun waves to be had. Head high plus on the bigger sets, rain and a little bit of sideshore winds for the first hours of the contest. Check it out!
We had about 1hour and 25 minutes break, the rain stopped and the waves start to fill in with the tide. A bunch of guys made it out to get some and JJ Kerson was one of the guys out there taking advantage during the break.
The competition kept going with the Grand Kahuna's finals. Where all the surfers in the water had the same chance to take the big medal home. Javier Huarcaya from Peru was the lucky man of this heat and he got into a nice score of 14.67.
Grand Master was next and here Mr Sonny Garcia did his thing to kill everyone out there. He got a couple of sick barrels during this heat, including the best score of the day 9.93. Check out this little seq!
James Hogan, Team USA former got pitted a couple of times and he was showing off on his style. 15.56 was enought to take the Gold. After taking second place last year in Salvador, he was more than happy to take first this year.
We made it to the main division final and the history was kinda the same. Sonny and Kaipo getting the best scores until Magnun Martinez from Venezuela step up and get his show started. The GOLD WINNING WAVE. Dropping in!
