The second day of competition at Steamer Lane saw Round 2 decide the first losers and eight heats of Round 3.
Upset of the day saw Matt Wilkinson knock John John Florence out of contention for the World Title.
"I know I can get big scores out here and I kind of know which waves are good," Wilkinson said. "It's a really tricky wave and there are so many elements that can make a good wave bad. It was a relief when I got that 9. I started off on a wave that I thought was perfect and there was so much wonky stuff going on. I just decided to wait for a bomb and when that one was coming I was super nervous. I knew if I just surfed it I'd get an 8. It was a perfect wave and I got a good score so I'm stoked."
*Don't forget all the heats on demand
