Zicatela Beach and all the spectators saw a lot of action from the men’s prone division. The second round was completed. All Mexican competitors advanced to the third round. Chuy Silva, Cesar Petroni, Gerardo Martinez, Jose Ramirez, Edwin Morales, Alexander Alvarez and Ulises Rodriguez.
The most exciting heat of the day had seeded number one Magno Oliveira, local Jesus Silva and Eduardo Carpinello from Chile. Magno took an early lead with a massive el Rollo and went back out straight into a perfect lefthander that would give him a 9.4 in the first five minutes.
Illuminated by the gods, Magno was able to find a better score riding a double barrel wave ending with a smooth invert taking the highest score of the competition so far; a 9.8 and a total heat score of 19.20 to seal the deal.
Local Jesus was in third place until the last few minutes where he found a little corner launching a clean ARS to take second place and move to the fourth round.
Waves are still picking up and it should be a great show for tomorrow morning. All round 3 will be running and all competitors are hungry for some big surf.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s action!!
