I caught one of Occ's heats that he did look pretty slow and tired in, but in another he looked pretty sharp and crisp. I think the tour is going through a mini resurgence of power surfing, kind of like how paddle surfing has made a come back over towing.
What was Heitor riding Chris? I was bummed that Toledo lost early. He's got that wild, unpredictable approach that's fun to watch. I wanted MB to do well too. I'm in a dilemma whether to pick him for Brazil. He did good there last year.
