Four surfers from four different countries have qualified for the semifinals of the 2016 Hurley Pro at Trestles, in San Clemente, California.
In an exciting quarterfinal battle, Filipe Toledo defeated Kelly Slater with the highest two-wave total of the day. The Brazilian only got his winning rides in the last third of the heat.
Toledo used his air knowledge to earn a 9.17; Slater answered with a competent 8.17. But Filipe was in comfortable waters and finished his sixth ride with an air reverse scored at 9.20.
