Drug Aware Margaret River Pro Day 1 Recap

The Drug Aware Margaret River Pro, Stop No. 2 on the 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour, was called ON today for the Men's and Women's Round 1 in four-to-six foot waves. In an action packed first day of competition there were standout performances from Julian Wilson (AUS), Gabriel Medina (BRA) and Courtney Conlogue (USA). With Round 1 complete for both the men and women winners will advance directly to Round 3 while the rest will battle again in elimination Round 2.

The second Heat of the day saw South African Jordy Smith, Hawaiian Sebastian Zietz and dangerous Brazilian Raoni Monteiro take to the water. The trio were forced to restart the Heat following a wave-starved first 10 minutes. Despite the inconsistent conditions Smith logged the first excellent score of the event, an 8.33, for a series of ferocious forehand carves, marking a solid return to form following an uncharacteristic Round 2 stumble on the Gold Coast.

The South African continued his Round 1 dominance, locking in to an additional righthander for a 7.00, punctuating a dominant opening campaign at Margaret River. Smith moves directly to Round 3 while Zietz will face Matt Wilkinson in Round 2 and Monteiro will matchup against C.J. Hobgood.

“I’d like to better my result at Snapper (Rocks),” said Jordy Smith. “It’s a long year ahead and I’m sure that many of the tops guys will have bad results at some point. Hopefully my result at the Gold Coast was my bad one out of the way and I can look forward to a good year ahead.”
