South African surfer Beyrick De Vries managed to
"When I was out there, it was mellow because I got my two waves very fast and I was able to relax in the last half of the heat. Nate is really good and then with Mitch and Miguel, they're on the CT, and you know they are going to get scores so I couldn't relax that much," says De Vries.
The first upset of the competition came in Heat 15. Alejo Muniz, defending event champion, was eliminated by Alex Ribeiro and Dane Reynolds.
"I knew I’d have to get the best waves. Conditions were tough with the low tide, but I just tried to relax and have fun. I’ve been training three times a day, five days a week to prepare for this event, and that win felt really good," says Ribeiro.
The event will surely offer pristine barrels, in a wonderful scenario, and it will distribute points for both the QS and Asian Surfing Championship (ASC).
"That wave at Cloud 9 is really good. Surfing Cloud 9 is like surfing my home break, Lacerations in Nusa Lembongan. Last year was my first time tosurf at Cloud 9 and I'm so stoked to win the event in really fun barrels. I'm so excited to go back there again," says pro surfer Putra Hermawan.
