The second day of the Master of the Ocean 2020 started with tropical sunshine and humpback whales saluting the athletes right in front of the competition site. There were overall good conditions for surfing with a 4 to 6 foot moderate swell that became progressively better throughout the morning. Overall surfing athletes got to a good start with solid performances throughout their heats. In Heat 1, 4 time title holder Zane Schweitzer executed solid manoeuvres to obtain 1st place followed by Diego Anta in 2nd place and Christopher Buenger from Germany in 3rd place. The 2nd heat showed more solid sets with Francis Gonzalez showing some great surfing placing 1st, followed by Sammy Perez Hults, a Dominican 2020 Olympic hopeful in windsurfing, in 2nd place and Anthony Collar in 3rd place. The final heat of the Overall Surf this morning was an exciting first place for past Master of the Ocean Winner, Luciano Gonzalez, who pulled off the best front side attack and aerial move on an optimal wave and had the audience and judges captivated. 2nd place in the 3rd heat goes to legendary Actionman Brian Talma and some great waves were caught by our 3rd place Estonian woman athlete, Maarja Kivistik. It became slightly windy and a bit choppy after the 3rd heat, so further surfing was postponed.
