Getting underway beneath blue skies and light offshore winds, finalists across main qualifying and repercharge rounds of the Masters (Over 25), Grand Masters (Over 40), Kahunas (Over 45), Grand Kahunas (Over 50) and Masters Women’s (Over 35) divisions were decided.

South American surfers stole the show with the Peruvian duo of Jorge Posso and Magoo De La Rosa scoring big wins in their respective round four heats.  Posso, a Punta Rocas local, caused the upset of the day, beating South African heavyweights Marc Wright and Nick Pike to blast his way through to the final of the Kahunas division.

After the lead swapped several times between Wright and Pike, Posso jagged the lead from his rivals with a 7.00 wave score, forcing his foes to chase victory.  His opponents locked in scores in the dying stages but it was not enough. Posso finishing on 12.50 points to Wright’s 11.54. Australian Rod Baldwin finished third, whilst Pike grabbed fourth.

“I was sitting in fourth place for the majority of the heat, so I knew I had to pull out something big,” said Posso. “I decided to risk everything in the last ten minutes. In the last minute the wave came and I made the most of it.”
