Final 16 surfers decided as Arugam Bay continues to pump at the SriLankan Airlines Pro

Yet another splendid day of surfing in sweltering heat on Sri Lankaa??s lushA? south east coastline with the round of 24 completed and now just 16 surfers remain in the Association of Surfing Professionals 6-star rated SriLankan Airlines Pro.

Indonesiaa??s Dede Suryana was again in outstanding form and the 24 year-old west Javanese surfer is enthusiastic about his chances here.

a??It is such a great wave and Ia??m getting more and more to know how the wave breaks and I really feel confident out therea?? said Suryana after his impressive heat win defeating South Africaa??s Ricky Basnett.

Wild card surfer Julian Wilson was also extremely impressive today again posting the days highest heat score with 15.60 (out of a possible 20) defeating and eliminating New Zealanda??s Richard Christie.

Othera??s to impress today included Dion Atkinson (AUS), Davey Cathels (AUS), Jayke Sharpe (AUS),A? Nat Young (USA) and Austin Ware (USA) while the number one and two seeds in Dan Ross and Drew Courtney are professionally destroying their opponents and look fully focused as we head into the final 16.

It really is the business end of the contest with 3 man heats surfed today and tomorrow ita??s down to surfinga??s purest competitive format with surfers paired off into man-on-man heats.

Australiaa??s Adam Robertson is no stranger to the man-on-man format with noteworthy results at Bells Beach over the years and hea??s delighted to be through to the final 16.

a??This wave will be really suited to the man-on-man heats a?? said Robertson.

a??The run around after you complete a wave has seen the inside position out here totally compromised in four-man heats but thata??s gone and I actually think youa??ll see performances rise significantly from here on in as each surfer chases and positions himself for the very best waves in each heat — they are calling for bigger and cleaner swells tomorrow and thata??s exciting, not just for me but for all of usa?? added Robertson.

Robertson faces a block buster heat against Julian Wilson tomorrow and with swells expected to be significantly larger ita??s a much anticipated clash of two very precise and power driven surfers.

Hawaiia??s flamboyant Mason Ho is also through and hea??ll no doubt delight in the larger waves forecast.

Two daya??s remain and organizers are looking to nurture this event through an epic finish aiming to run all remaining heats through the pristine morning conditions.
