"When you know you have a good wave to start it makes you feel confident but I was paddling when they announced my first score (7.33) so I really didn't know I had the lead" Kirra Pinkerton said. " I couldn't see her waves because we were never in the lineup at the same time, and when I knew I had won, it was a big sigh of relief."

"The waves were pumping, it was sick to put the jersey on and surf close to home." Kade Matson said. "I worked really hard to come back and I was really happy to see it pay off. Today, I focused more on wave selection and being in the right spots. I'm super stoked it worked out."

"I come from a lot of big waves living down in Mexico, so once the swells pick up, I definitely feel more comfortable " Alan Cleland said. "I sat here for two hours and watched the last three girl's heats and the first guys heat and it looked like it was getting better and better every heat. I'm just stoked to be part of this in my last year."

Next call is 8 am on Thursday with the men kicking things off, and the ladies to follow at noon.
