STARTING off with a lack-lustre Jordy Smith defeating Peterson Crisanto it looked like disaster before the locals grabbed a score draw during round two of the Billabong Rio Pro.
Igor Morais fell with Simao Romao and Alejo Muniz completing the Brazilian casualties. Not entirely unexpected against the quality they were facing and round three still has four of the big Brazza faces, Jadson Andre, Adriano de Souza, Heitor Alves and Raoni Monteiro itching to strut it on home soil.
Heat of the day was J-Dub verses C.J. Hobgood, who had it bagged and tagged before a late charge from a comboed Julien Wilson almost pulled it off. All the lovers of the perm were left feeling a little limp after Matty Wilkinson couldn't back it up against a resurgent Bobby Martinez.
Forecast looks like we'll be seeing action every day now till the finish so make sure to watch it live HERE.
