When the webcast flip got switched on, so did the surfing — especially for team Hurley. Here's the rundown: in his first heat back since his ankle injury, Evan Geiselman got first. Miguel Pupo also took first after a nice, high scoring heat — 18.07 to be exact. Last year's runner up, Yadin Nicol looked relaxed as he secured a second place finish in his Round 1 heat. And not to be outdone by all of the above, Mitch Crews put on a show, surfing incredibly and winning his heat with a 16.70 heat score. There were some upsets though as Ace Buchan was eked out early, along with last minute Men's alternate Conner Coffin. But by the looks of things today, it's going to be a great week south of the pier. Join us online tomorrow at usopenofsurfing.com/live.
