Brian Talma faced two of the local DR boys, Dauri and Guillaume, in heat two. Dauri, seeking to make a name for himself, drew blood quickly with a sweet shoulder high wave that held up and delivered high scores for his first wave. Guillaume pounced on two good waves back to back. By 9am, a nasty rain storm rolled in and forced event organizers to stop the heat until it passed. Less than 20 minutes later and the heat was back on with Brian looping around the first set wave and paddling into one of the bigger waves of the heat. Seeing this, Dauri picked off the following wave and added another great score to the board. Brian made his way back out and snagged a keeper just as the horn went off to finish the heat. Dauri took the win, Brian came in second and Guillaume in third.
