Pro Surf Circuit O’Neill Series
Domes Beach, Rincon, Puerto Rico (Sunday, March 8, 2015) – The 2015 Corona Extra Pro Surf Circuit O’Neill Series finished and crowned champions today in 2-4 foot building surf. The surfers started the morning off in difficult small conditions but as forecasted by midday NNW pulses began to show and offered plenty of fun waves. The champions, Asher Nolan (FL) and Quincy Davis (NY), were able to prove themselves in varying wave and wind conditions.
Nolan channeled his stand-out performance on day one into a $10,000 champion check on the final day. He stayed consistent and stuck to catching rights off the Domes point and annihilating them with sharp backhand pocket surfing. The final showdown was between Asher Nolan and Francisco Bellorin. Both surfers opened the heat up with good waves but Asher was able to hold the win with the second highest wave of the day an 8.93. Bellorin also posted multiple excellents by putting his power surfing on display. Other top performances of day were semi finalists Michael Dunphy (VA) and Gabriel Escudero (PR). The highest wave total was awarded to Rafael Pereira (VNZ) with a 17.63, he received the O’Neill Performance of the Event award for $1,000. Pereira entertained the crowd with his air reverses and long combinations. He was able to use his speed to make long sections where other surfers were getting caught behind.
