Full day of repechage rounds run today in Ecuador

10 April, 2014. Today witnessed huge upsets. Defending Boys U-18 Gold Medalist from the 2013 ISA WJSC, Josh Moniz (HAW) was eliminated from the contest. Another casualty was one of the event favorites, Noe Mar McGonagle from Costa Rica, who came close to a Gold Medal in 2012 and was chasing after the title in his last year as a junior.

The nail-biting day featured heats in the Repechage rounds 2-5 for both Boys and Girls divisions. With the current swell maintained in the 2-4 feet range, although bigger waves are on the way. Surfline, the official forecaster of the event has predicted a building swell on Saturday that will deliver 5-8ft waves with occasional 10ft+ waves on Sunday.

Largest-ever tagged great white

The tagging of a huge five-metre white pointer in King George Sound has presented a potentially huge breakthrough in shark research and a triumph for local Fisheries staff. The massive female great white, estimated to weigh about 1.6 tonnes, was the biggest ever internally tagged in Australia, and one of the largest in the world.

   

And the Wipeout Award goes to....?

Of all the waves...I vote for this one and Koa Rothman. Clearly the heaviest. What do you think?
