The weather was everything tourists dreamt it wouldn’t be. The skies opened up at Haleiwa today and while the rain poured down, the contest fired up. The first round of competition hacked into the stormy sea (they were getting wet anyway, the competitors supposed). In 4-to 6-foot surf, power overruled any and all types of tail flickery. Case in point was Mr. Gabe Kling, who earned the day’s highest score by thundering through a trio of turns for 9.33 points. Lightning need not apply.

The remainder of Round 2 could possibly run tomorrow. Once we get into Round 3, or the Round of 64, we’ll see the Danes, Micks and John Johns of the world surf. Check back for more updates.
