Nothing better than a long period swell for the best rounds of the contest. All third round was an amazing spectacle for everyone who witnessed the heats. Heavy barrels, epic ramps and beautiful weather.
The third round continued with Dave Hubbard and James Murdock advancing, leaving Spaniard Elosua in third. In heat 4 we saw a slow start but a strong finish from local kid Cesar Petroni taking the heat with a solid invert.
Ardiel was able to find some corners and Giovanni Greco was unable to find a good score.
Gregory Wonters and Cesar Bauer eliminated local big wave charger, Jose Ramirez in a tough heat. Jorge Colomer in heat 6, was feeling comfortable finding good barrels and air sections.
In heat seven seeded #2 Hermano Pereira, was almost eliminated having a hard time finding the right wave. Barely made it in second moving to the next round with local Edwin Morales. Felipe Mendez and Jeremy Loebstock were the last to move into 4th round.
Forth round of action was the most anticipated moment of the day. With men on men heat format, the second heat had local Jesus Silva and argentine Emiliano Tabare.
Conditions were changing and it was hard to find a good wave, but the local kid found a perfect and deep left barrel that would give him the victory to move into quarterfinals.
Magno with a solid win over Puerto Rican Babby Quiñones will face local Jesus Silva in the most thrilling heat of the comp for all Mexican crowd!
