Shock Twist in World Surf League Championship Tour!

With the first round of The World Tour underway last night, the first shocks are out of the bag!

Jaws dropped worldwide as JonJon and Gabriel Medina failed to make it through their first round. Despite surfing an incredible wave, an interference prevented Medina progressing beyond his first surf. JonJon, meanwhile, struggled to find anything that could be considered a good wave during his heat. Both surfers will now have to surf in Round 2 to keep their place in the competition.

The long and short? In an unexpected early turn, there will be appearance from Medina and JonJon in Round 2 of this illustrious surf competition.
