Today was Matt's maiden heat on the World Surf Leage tour, he came out of the gates firing scoring a solid 8.67 on his opening wave. It was a stacked 1st round heat with locals Mick Fanning and Jack Freestone, so Matt knew he would have to be on his game to have a chance of beating these guys, he soon had the other boys on the back foot with a second score of 8.93. There was a flurry of waves in the last few minutes of the heat with Mick baging a 9.67, but not enough for him to overtake Matty. So Matt's into the third of the Quiksilver event which will be running over the next ten days.
