Sure, it wasn’t the nicest day, or whatevs, but holy hell, did y’see some of those caves? Like, er, today’s Full Frame? Or Raoni Monteiro’s unanimous 10? Or Alejo Muniz’ 9.60? Immense, to say the least. Round two was a giant-killing round, with Joel Parkinson, Taj Burrow and Adrian De Souza going down, leaving only two of the top five world title contenders in the event (Jordy Smith and Mick Fanning). And it’s gonna get bigger than this? Sure is an exciting few days ahead.
