Round two of competition got under way today at snapper rocks. I was thinking it was going to be a lay day, but waking to light winds and 3ft waves meant they got under way about 7:30am. The rain has held off even with overcast skys suggesting rain, but weather was still very hot, just like the competition in the water. There was some great surfing by the guys, with standouts being Andy Irons with the highest heat score of the day. Dane Reynolds & Jordy Smith were pushing surfing in the competition arena by displaying some futuristic moves in thier relative heats. Both were rewarded by progressing into the 3rd round. Conditions got worse as the tide dropped and the wind came up and second round was wrapped up by about 2:30pm. There was still waves but it was not clean like the morning. Free surfers were keen to hit the water and were paddling out just before the final hooter sounded. Once it went, the lineup was packed with everyone wanting to get there little piece of snapper. Well we still have plenty of Aussie’s keen to take it out so when the battle continues lets hope one of them comes out on top. Till next time.
28th Feb 2008 Update: Layday at the comp but have just been down at D’Bah taking a few photos so will get them up tomorow some time for you to have a look. We have swell on the way so the quiky & roxy pros should be back on track come tomorrow or the weekend atleast . Conditions were clean and glassy at D’bah with waves in the 2ft range. Theres some peaky little sand banks there at the moment and there was no shortage of crew all over it. Like wise at snapper but the waves were even smaller.
