Drama, drama, drama. Dusty Payne withdraws due to his sliced knee and sends Michel Bourez through to the next round? Jeremy Flores nails two 10’s against Michel in round five, clocking in a perfect 20-point heat score? Owen Wright handles a 9.77 and a 10, to combo both Ranoi Monteiro and Freddie Patacchia in round four? Freddie, with priority, drops in on Mick Fanning (after Mick’s already come out of a tube) and causes a Fanning interference in round three? Jordy breaks cracks rib against fellow Saffa Travis Logie, then, after a re-surf of the heat, loses? What a day, huh? Wonder what tomorrow holds for the Billabong Pro, Tahiti.
