Update Feb 15th
Stu finished the event in 3rd today in 3' -4' onshore conditions. He took care of the Hawaiian in his Quarter final with some big turns and one huge full rota frontside air that was so close to perfect , he scored a 9.93. He had Andino for most of his Semi but was unlucky when the panel gave the American the score he needed for a pretty soft backhand air 180 flick . Stu will gain 3550 ratings points and starts his qualification campaign for '16 in a big way. Congratulations mate.
