HOT HEAT! Tube Masters Jack Robinson and Jeremy Flores Trade Barrels At Firing Main

  • by

Jeremy Flores vs. Jack Robinson Heat replay from the Boost Mobile Margaret River Pro Round of 32.
This blockbuster heat had local Jack Robinson up against Tour veteran Jeremy Flores. They’re two of the best tube riders in the world, and in their heat they both found hollow right-handers, trading off barrels and big turns with Flores eventually taking the win over the rookie Australian.

"Coming up against the local boy, who rips in pumping surf, this is what we do this for," a jubilant Flores explained afterwards. "We are at opposite ends of our careers, his is starting and I’m coming towards the end. If we were in smaller waves I’d struggle to match it in the air but in waves like this, I know I can perform well. It feels good to know I can still match it with a young beast like Jack Robinson. I’m glad to have a heat with him before I end my career and I’m even more glad to win it."

After a thrilling event at Narrabeen that saw some of the biggest title contenders get upset by up-and-coming surfers, the unpredictable Australian leg heads west to the Boost Mobile Margaret River Pro presented by Corona. Current WSL Rankings leaders Gabriel Medina and Carissa Moore try to continue their run of dominance. John John Florence and Sally Fitzgibbons look to match the power of the raw Western Australia surf, while Margaret River’s own Jack Robinson hopes to turn his local knowledge into an event win.
