Cheer On Timmy Reyes!

Congratulations to Jack’s Surfboards Team Rider Timmy Reyes (Huntington Beach, CA), 26, who was the only American surfer to advance from the sudden-death elimination round to advance through to Round 2.
Timmy Reyes scored just a 3.90 out of 20 in his heat, but still managed to eliminate his opponent Mikael Picon (Capbreton, FRA), 30, from competition. Timmy Reyes is currently rated 29th overall on tour thus far with 33rd and 17th place finishes, and his advancement out of the low wave heat will potentially play an important role in the remainder of his season.
“I’m used to getting rides out there of our total combined,” Reyes said. “It was really hard – a southeast swell pushing up top. There are still waves, but it’s hard to find position. Miky (Picon) got the only wave that was good. There were a couple of good waves early today and yesterday was great. A win’s a win though. I’m stoked to get through.”
Timmy Reyes will tackle Australian Kieren Perrow (Byron Bay, AUS), 34, in Round 2 when competition resumes.
Another Jack’s Surfboards Team rider Patrick Gudauskas (San Clemente, CA), 23, made it into the contest, but was unable to escape an early elimination and suffered an equal 33rd place finish.
Good luck to Timmy on the rest of the contest! (That is if the waves decide to pick up so they can run the contest)
