Stuart Kennedy - currently leading the rankings - was on the beach watching closely as Shaun Cansdell progressed to the round of 16. With Stuart out of the CWC Canada, and Royden Bryson having failed to show, Shaun Cansdell could take the lead here if he makes it at least to the semi finals.
So will there be a bit of a fight going into Santa Cruz for the $50,000? "For sure," said Shaun. "It's $50,000. I know everyone will be surfing at their best for that. I am just stoked to keep going in this event. Hopefully I can pull a result here and make it a bit harder for the other guys."
The next call will be October 14th at 7.30am for Heat 1 in the Round of 16.
