Pacific teams hold lead Day 5 of ISA World Masters.
Surf News, 19 July, 2012 : Just three days until the finals, the action on Day 5 of the Nicaragua ISA World Masters Surfing Championship continued to reduce the number of competitors and further intensified the battle for Team Gold and the perpetual Eduardo Arena Trophy.
Heats started two hours later this morning to allow for optimal tide and winds, in order to equip the world’s best over-35-year-old surfers with ample opportunity to find the waves with the highest scoring potential at Colorado Beach at Hacienda Iguana. Waves remained in the three to four-foot range, with plenty of long, open faces for big turns and the occasional barrel.
