Favorites, including Irons move on
By The Garden Island
With an epic six footplus swell arriving overnight, the Boost Mobile Pro presented by Quiksilver powered into round three yesterday with the top five ranked surfers dominating proceedings.
In front of the huge crowd at Trestles, located just south of San Clemente California, Kelly Slater, Hanalei’s Andy Irons, and Australians Mick Fanning, Trent Munro and Phil Macdonald, ranked one to five on the Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour, put on phenomenal performances to overcome their foes.
Much of the day’s focus was on the progression of Slater and Irons as potentially they could meet up again in the final for the third time this year and both showed fantastic form as both left their opposition needing two good scoring rides to catch up.
Due to State Park regulations the Boost Mobile Pro of Surf presented by Quiksilver will be put on hold for today and will be completed on Sunday. Also talking place will be the Foster’s Expression Session and a celebrity surf off.
Ginez, Arizo dominate
Both Dennis Ginez and Aaron Arizo took the TQ and dominated their divisions on Sunday from the start and never looked back. Other big winners included Noel Udaundo and J.L. Vento.
Results of the event can be found in the scoreboard on page B2. The next race happens on Sept. 25 in the back parking lot of Big KMart if weather permits.
There is no admission charge and for more info. call Arnold at 2452604 or 6399314.
