Infamous waves, breathtaking wipeouts and surfers winning heats with a combined heat score of 4.30 points. Welcome to the first day of competition of the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro 2015, in Western Australia.
The world’s best surfers survived the test. The first heats were run at The Box, but the carnage continued later at Margaret River’s Main Break with the remaining heats of Round 1.
After watching John John Florence wiping out and winning his heat, Sebastian Zietz found one of the morning’s best barrel rides and secured the highest heat total of the day: 15.23 points.
