Deu no saite da Surfing -
[Taj Burrow versus Perdro Henrique in Round 3. Taj is #2 in the world, Pedro is #42. The surf is small, windy, tricky. Taj opts to surf a semi-closed out right while Pedro goes for the rip bowl lefts. Taj gets an okay right that scores a 7.83. It's a bit of a gift, but hey, the judges love the guy especially in waves like this. A few minutes later Pedro tears the bag out a peeling left and scores 8.1. Suddenly this has become interesting. Taj's mates cry foul and root on their boy to shut this guy down. Taj stays patient and waits out the back, determined to play it smart and not panic on this, his second serious run at a world title. Pedro gets another wave. Hold on. What was that? One massive, inverted, fins out, snapping air, then another. The two best maneuvers of the day in quick succession. Kelly's bro, Todd Kline, smells blood in the water. "Something's about to go down right here," he says.
Pedro's score? An unthinkable 7.27. The wave was at least a point better than his 8 and everyone knows it. Kelly Slater, doing commentary for the webcast, says he's going to call the head judge personally to complain. "That was bullshit," says Fred Patacchia backstage. "Pedro flared so hard on that one." Taj's mates are conspicuously silent.]
