After struggling for much of his Round 4 heat, John John Florence (HAW)
finally found what he'd been waiting for: He dropped into this massive wave at Main Break in Round 4 at the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro to score a 9.50 and win the heat.
Nat Young (USA) has been on fire since Bells, where he made it to the Semifinals. At the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro, he was again on a hot streak, hacking up a heavy wave in Round 4 at Main Break to earn a 9.20.
As if her 9.10 and 9.50 weren't enough, on her next wave Carissa Moore (HAW) earned a 9.73 to obliterate any chance her opponents might have had to catch up. She won her Round 3 heat at the Women's Drug Aware Margaret River Pro to advance to the Quarterfinals.
