O velho careca voltou afiado como nunca.
'Bruce Irons in the past has tended to lose interest in contests in bad waves. This year he's clearly got other ideas, and got off to a great start with a monumental frontside ultra-punt. The judges didn't chicken out and gave him a 9-plus, which is what the move deserved. Bruce is in form, but it didn't stop him being beaten by an utterly furious and amazing closing ride from Raoni Monteiro, a ride Raoni must have dredged up from all his years of WQS beachbreak slop events. Don't panic, Bruce, just remember the backup wave next time.'
