Top seeds throwin it down at Day 3 of the REEF Hawaiian Pro

The big guns entered the draw at the REEF Hawaiian Pro today and the battle for the 30th anniversary Vans Triple Crown of Surfing titlebegan in earnest. Super clean and contestable 4-foot surf may have been smaller than yesterday's offering, but it opened up the door for the full spectrum of maneuvers from tube rides to aerials. With four surfers in the water at any given time, the judges had their work cut out for them: A total of 1,053 individual rides were scored today.

Between the high-scoring heat of Australian Tom Whitaker, the mind-altering maneuvers of Ventura's Dane Reynolds, the tube-riding finesse of Torrey Meister, and the iconic Clash of the Legends, everyone went home fired up.

"I've been doing a lot of coaching with kids so just playing the game, watching them play the game, and repeating back to them how to play the game helps a lot," said Hart. 

 
"It's not who you're against in the water - it's yourself, the ocean, and time. I try to tell the kids that. It's very important. Just making it out of every heat and having fun is the goal."
