Upsets creating wide open field at US Open of Surfing

Morris / WSL

Ezekiel Lau was one of the few Championship Tour surfers to survive the early rounds at the QS 10,000 US Open of Surfing. Four second-round heats remain, but Lau is safely into round three. The same can’t be said for Sebastian Zietz, Matt Wilkinson, Frederico Morais, Jeremy Flores and others who were eliminated early.

Swiftly and succinctly, the US Open of Surfing has progressed into the back end of round two for the men’s QS 10,000 contest. The overriding theme to this point has been upsets, as a lot of big names have fallen by the wayside in the early going, leaving plenty of hopefuls with some easier roads to big results.
