UPDATE Sept 13th
Mello went down to C.J by 0.44 points in round 3 and finished the event with another solid result in 13th.
Owen smashed Tiago Pires in round 3. In round 4 he scored one of the greatest comebacks in ASP history, vaulting past Slater and C.J. in the last three minutes.

“The start of the heat was really tough for me. I was out of rhythm and the other guys were catching all of the waves. I was kind of stuck in a rut. Then that set came through and I got started. C.J. paddled for one and just missed it and I paddled wide and a bomb set came to me. It was the best wave I’ve ever caught out there. It was just such a smooth wave, it actually felt like Bells.”

With the activation of the new 36-man competition format, his round 4 victory advances Owen directly into the Quarterfinals.

“I’m really stoked to get through to the Quarterfinals. I’m guaranteed a 5th at least and I’m pretty stoked with that. I’ll definitely be looking to go a bit further. I feel like this wave really suits me, but it suits everyone as well, so I’ve just got to keep doing my thing and hopefully we keep getting perfect waves like that again tomorrow.”
