Defending Triple Crown champ, Joel Parkinson, having scored a perfect 10 with this barrel in the previous heat had one decent score under his belt in the quarters. Needing a score in the five range he agonisingly looked over the ledge of two waves with 30 seconds on the clock, saw the closeout and decided to leave them. No other waves came through in time and that was it.© 2014 Kelly Cestari/ASP/CI via Getty Images

Joel Centeio absolutely performed above-and-beyond in semi final one, a confident display, supplemented by plenty of added support from the beach and a bit of local knowledge was more than enough.
