the Soup Bowl dur­ing the af­ter­noon af­ter a tough Qual­i­fy­ing Se­ries.

“The QS is def­i­nitely a grind, but this year I just wanted to take it a lit­tle eas­ier af­ter the stress of qual­i­fy­ing for Worlds the last two years. I did a few events that were close to home, or cool places, or con­ve­nient like the Aus­tralian events since I was al­ready there and ac­tu­ally got a few good re­sults – which was great,” he said.

En­joy­able con­di­tions

One of the pro­mot­ers, Louis Venezia, said the vis­it­ing surfers should once again en­joy con­di­tions at the Soup Bowl.

“When the waves are good, the Soup Bowl is as good as any CT [Cham­pi­onship Tour] level wave on the planet, and that’s not com­mon for a ju­nior event. To­day [yes­ter­day] there is a three- to four-foot east swell which is ex­pected to con­tinue through Fri­day be­fore a north east swell ar­rives which is ex­pected to be sub­stan­tially big­ger. The fi­nal day is on Sun­day and we are ex­pect­ing to see world-class surf­ing.

“This year, we added an ex­tra two days of com­pe­ti­tion to the wait­ing pe­riod, and this will help us max­imise the op­por­tu­nity for Soup Bowl to re­ally turn on and let these kids show­case their tal­ents to a world­wide au­di­ence. I ex­pect the lo­cal surfers to per­form quite well,” he said.
