Action is set with Round One underway and full day of competition scheduled for the competitors. North America Tour Manager Brian Robbins was on-site for the call to begin the day alongside event organizers.

“We’re really excited to get this event underway and couldn’t be happier with the effort from Jack’s Surfboards to produce a webcast for these surfers,” Robbins said. “We’re looking to complete all of Round One and get the first eight heats of Round Two done by day’s end. The waves are looking solid despite some wind coming up early and these competitors have already shown its potential with some great surfing.
