In excellent barrelling conditions Perrow defeated fellow Aussie (two-time ASP World Champion and 2012 World Title contender) Mick Fanning in Round 1 by the smallest of margins. Perrow posted a heat total of 6.70 points to the 6.67 (both out of a possible 20.00) set by Fanning to advance directly into Round 3 of competition.
