Day 2 Volcom Fiji Pro

by on Monday 4th June, 2012   15908 Views

TOP seeds rebounded as Cloudbreak held enough size and shape to complete Round 2 of the Volcom Fiji Pro. The slightly smaller swell lined-up perfectly on the reef providing wide open barrels. All good training for Friday’s forecasted thumping swell.

The day started off with Kelly Slater matched up against local Fijian wildcard Isei Tokovou. Tokovou slid into one of the biggest tubes of the day but was unable to exit and Slater got the nod into round three with a 15.90 heat total. 

Julian Wilson posted the event’s highest heat total with two amazing 9 point plus rides against Patrick Gudauskas in the first ten minutes of heat number four. “The conditions are pretty perfect today, Wilson commented, “I had a tough time out there in my heat yesterday so I really wanted to get this heat going today.  It felt good to get that first wave at the start and I was glad that I could back it up with another one.”

It was Gabriel Medina who scored the highest single wave of the Volcom Fiji Pro this far with a perfect ten point ride. For all this and more, heats on demand are here.
