The Ocean & Earth Pro presented by La Caja de Canarias 4star WQS starts today and runs til the 12th. The event is held at the right hand reefbreak El Confital on the island of Gran Canaria . In the round of 96 we have Anthony Walsh Ht 7, Stuey Kennedy Ht 10 and Adam Melling in Ht 14. Mello had a good result here last year and he'll be hoping to back that up this year especially as we head into the final few qualifying events of '08. Good luck fellahs.
Day 1 has been called a lay day. Check back tomorrow.
Deja Vu, check back Wednesday.
It looks like another day off, someone killed the Canary.

Anthony Walsh progressed thru his first heat in style. His wave scores were 5.17 and a 10. If you get a 10 it means you are going pretty good. Stu Kennedy won his heat surfing really confidently and is thru to the top 64 too. Adam comboed the rest in his heat - say no more . F@#K those waves look like fun.

UPDATE 10.10
Walshy managed to progress thru a very low scoring heat to make the final 32. Stu Kennedy has progressed in a heat that he almost won. The Iceman ,Mello, had 1 good score and waited and waited until the last couple of minutes to get a score that pushed him thru. It looks like he is saving himself. A good look when you get thru but hard to watch sometimes.

Both Stuey and Mello are thru to the final 16 and will surf in the same heat in round 4. Walshy bowed out in round 3

UPDATE 11.10
Stu surfed a really smart heat and has progressed thru to the final 8, Unfortunately Adam did not find the waves to get thru.

UPDATE 12.10
Stu was on fire last night and has made it into the Semi-finals tonight where he surfs against Owen Wright. Good luck mate !!

Stu finished 2nd to Angourie's Dan Ross in cooking 4'-5' waves at El Confital. This is an amazing result for him and the whole club is really proud. Don't get in his way the kid is on a roll. Go have a beer mate and good luck in the next event.
