Gold Coast surfer Josh Kerr, top seed at the Reef Pro El Salvador and current ASP World No 9, was one to watch in each round, commanding several heats on his way to the final. Kerr would top ASP World Junior Champion Caio Ibelli from Brazil and fellow Aussie Wade Carmichael on his way to the final, but was unable to surpass Peterson Crisanto from Brazil’s rampage finishing runner-up.

‘It’s a long way to the final and it’s tough to lose, but it was definitely a good event,’ said Kerr. ‘It’s such a sick wave and it’s too bad the waves didn’t show up for the final. It slowed down so much and it was kind of pumping just before the final. It was a sick event. It’s my first time to El Salvador and the place is amazing.’
