Today were selected the 4 surfers who will meet the 4 already qualified of the round 4, Owen Wright, John John Florence, Adriano de Sousa and Kolohe Andino.

Those who adapted better in today conditions were the young Australian Jack Freestone, who defeated the North American Conner Coffin, Michel Bourez, who managed to overtake Julian Wilson, Filipe Toledo who overcame Hawaiian Sebastian Zietz and Jordy Smith that defeated Frenchman Jeremy Flores.

Due to the most favorable forecasts for Tuesday, the organization decided early next morning to check the conditions and decide if it will start with the last day of competition.
