Take a look at this picture. Now that’s one happy camper. This is what it looks like to find out you just beat the number two seed in the event in a man-on-man heat.
Indonesian local Darmaputra Tonjo does not speak English, so as the other surfers enjoy the luxury of having their scores read to them in the water by sweaty men baking in a tent, Darmaputra has to just guess what his scores are based on how happy his friends on the beach look. After a well fought battle in his round two heat, this moment captures the confirmation from his supporters that he just took out Nat Young.
Fun rippable righthanders marched onto the slab of reef at Keramas all day, as the boys took to the water, finishing up round 1 and getting through the first four heats of round 2 in the Oakley World Pro Jr Bali.
Defending champion Jack Freestone was able to avoid Young’s fate in the previous heat, breezing past another young Indo in Ida Bagus Putu Simar (real name) to move into Round Three.
Look for action to resume at Keramas tomorrow.
