Hide loses in round 32 but........
Got up early again and watch Hide's heat. He surfed really good and I think he should have got through the heat. They ( the judges ) over scored Jordy Smith on one of his waves and if it wasn't for that Hide would have got through. They gave him a 8.00 when it should have been maybe a 7.00. Even the announcers said the wave was over scored. He is a unreal surfer but he didn't deserve that 8.00 an got it for just who he is. And at the end of the heat Hide needs a 6.18 to get to 2nd. There's only a few seconds left and Hide takes off but Dane Ward the kook drops in on him on because he doesn't have a chance to get through. That could have been the wave to get him into the next round . I was pissed off when I saw that but that's how it goes. Hide's now off to Brazil.
Sorry I don't have any shots of the Menehune contest. We had some other things going on and couldn't make it. Will try again tomorrow.
Have a wonderful day !!!
