UPDATE Sept 30
In the round of 64 Stu comboed the other groms with a 7.00 and an 8.25.
He's just warming up.
“I was lucky with the waves I was gifted today, it definitely about luck out there. I knew I had to make the most of the opportunity that presented itself.”
“Last year the fire inside burnt so intensely and I wanted it so bad, but this year has been a learning curve on the WQS. I have had a lot of time to focus and work on my surfing, but it has been hard work.”
“This is my last event so I want to go out with a win, or at least a good performance to carry me into next year.”

Stu came 2nd in his round of 32 heat in solid crankin' 5'-6' waves moving into the final 16.
Stu was then eliminated in a tight heat in tough conditions and finished in 9th.
