WHAT AN EVENT!! Congrats to this man, Jeremy Flores. So well deserving! Last year, he missed this event due to punishment by the WSL and he also missed the event before this, the J-Bay Open this year, due to an injury he sustained in Indonesia (the reason why he wore a helmet).
During this event he took down 4 World Champions (Parko, Kelly, CJ and Medina) and earned himself the title of his favorite event on tour! YEW!
I’d like to congratulate Gabriel on almost backing up his title last year, what a run he had… And the legendary CJ Hobgood, for showing he still has all of his talent in there, and for that, getting the prestigious Andy Irons Awards for the most committed surfer in the event.
