Kolohe Andino lit up his heat at the Australian Open of Surfing, Manly, yesterday. Lit up, at least, as much as y’can in knee to waist-high slop. A combined total of 16.43 put him well in front of the other men in his heat. Enough, even, that he could come in a coupla minutes before the final siren (scooping a bluebottle sting to ze foot in the process.) A few hours before the heat, Kolohe met first light with a warm-up session. At the stroke of 6.30am, the Californian hit the finner y’see here into a reverse. A motion he’s well and truly polished, and the kinda sizzle that sees him into the business end of most contests he enters. A secret, perhaps, of his success? Warm-up session in a fullsuit, followed by a heat in trunks (and enhanced manoeuvrability.)
