Identical wave and heat scores for entirely different surfing

In their Hurley Pro Round 3 heat at Lowers, both Adriano de Souza and Filipe Toledo literally went wave for wave all the way to the final moments. The pair ended the heat two identical scores posted: 8.77 and 7.90. So what’s a pro to do? The ASP has a rule for such a scenario.

Kicked Out at Teahupoo

Highlights of accidents from the Teahupoo Offramp

Given that dolphins aren’t well-versed
