By the beginning of the second heat, Andreas, Nisael, Joselito and Emmanuel Rondon all knew exactly where to score the better waves. Joselito sat, for a time, in the middle of the lineup and picked off what was arguably one of the better waves the day. Upon seeing this, Nisael quickly moved positions to where Joselito had just taken off and followed suit with his own good wave. Andreas, tried as he could to find some waves that would give him the scores he was looking for, but fell flat in his wave selection. Emmanuel, who is no stranger to competition, moved like a cat. He skillfully caught the wave that would help him get the highest heat totals and advance. Moving into the finals was Emmanuel in first and Joselito in second.
