Today, long day. Sun rise to sun down, with a King o' Grom high tide shaped break in the afternoon. The dregs of Rd2 were done in early doors, then the entirety of Rd3 put to bed as Owen smoked Tiags at the death of the light this evening.

Here are the headlines:

- KELLY smashed Ramzi B and looked rudely in form.

- JORDY bat Big Dane, but only just. Dane was injured first, btw.

- MICK lost to Taylor in a heat when waves were scarcer than scarce.

- OWEN pummeled SACA

- JAY DUB diddled Pupo

- MIMI beat KaiOttz but hobbled out early and it looked like the troublesome right ankle.

- MICHEL eased past KP

- TAJ somehow got passed TRAVelLOG (iffy score)

The sun was out and shining bright most of the day. Tonight, matey flew over in his parachute with a fan thingy. Lots of crowd, a fair bit of po na naa.
