After round 1 has ended there have been a few shocks served up by the big barrels of Teahupoo. Chris Ward, Dane Reynolds and last years Champ Bruno Santos have all been eliminated due to the new competition format seen on tour this year. Wildcard and 3x former world champ Andy Irons makes it through to round 2.
At this point there should be a picture or nice photo of one of the worlds best getting barreled of their head. BUT THE INTERNET STOLE MY SOUL!
