The Margaret River Pro event consists of the top 36 male surfers and the top 18 female surfers in the world. This surfing comp takes place on the Margaret River, famous for its world-class waves, and as thousands of spectators flock to the surfers point, things are getting pretty amped.

The quarter final round saw John John Florence knock out Jay Davies from Australia with a score of 17.87. Jay Davies however only managed to accumulate a score of 13.84, and over the two waves, John John Florence from Hawaii was certainly the standout winner. The second heat saw USA born Nat Young surf against Michel Bourez, and even though this one was a little closer, Nat Young proved to be a winner in both waves.

Heat 3 saw Taj Burrow from Australia verse a fellow Australian, Julian Wilson. Taj put on a great display and was a clear winner over the two waves. Heat 4 was Adriano de Souza verses Kelly Slater, and Adriano de Souza came out on top in both waves.
In the upcoming semi-finals, we have a sweet matchup between some very talented surfers. All four surfers that have made it into this round have outscored their competition in both waves, so there’s no telling who the winner will be.

John John Florence, a personal favourite for many, going up against Nat Young from the USA. We also have Taj Burrow vs. Adriano de Souza and with the winner advancing into the final round; it’s safe to say that tensions are rising between the group.
With not long to go until the winner is crowned, many people expect the final round to be high scoring with some interesting matchups forming.

Currently 40% of the donations are going towards the Fiji SAD (Surfers against Destruction).

“We aim to provide mooring buoys to be located on the famous surfing reefs, this will ensure boats tie up instead of throwing anchor’s over the side causing damage to the living coral and reef below.”
