The swell has jumped up a notch this morning and there are plenty of happy faces on the beach both organisers and crowds alike. There are some solid barrels ridden early and the favourites have advanced. Both Mick Fanning and Kelly Slater are on form but John John is not far behind on his home break. Check these pics out. Have a great day.
This is how the morning started.
