Jarrad Howse tells us about the highlights of Day2. They finish Round 1 and go through Heat 6 of Round 96. Conditions had eased slightly from yesterday allowing the competition to use its mobile format and head to the more exposed beach of Lighthouse. The surfers battle through 3meter swell with strong winds. 17-year-old John John Florence (HAW) took to the water, pulled out some of the most impressive surfing this competition has seen so far, and walked away with a perfect 10!! Defending O'Neill Cold Water Classic Tasmania champion Jordy Smith (ZAF) got out of his sick bed to compete. With a cold and blocked sinuses, Jordy still managed to produce an awesome display of surfing, scoring 9.17 in the first heat of the Round of 96!!
