The Final was a close battle between two Huntington Beach natives, Kanoa Igarashi (USA) and Chris Waring (USA). Waves poured in during the thirty-minute man-on-man heat, and both competitors were dropping solid scores in multiple back and forth exchanges and lead changes. Kanoa jumped into the lead in the dying minutes, after dropping a 7.57 on a long right-hander where he connected multiple turns from the outside before finishing with a final blast in the shore break, and held on until the final horn. This is Igarashi’s first ever Qualification Series (QS) win. 

Igarashi will add this win to a string of good results he has had lately on the QS, with a second place finish at the Belmar Pro and a 3rd at the Galicia Pro in Spain. The well-decorated seventeen year old will be a face to remember as his results in the Qualification Series seem to only be getting better.

Runner-up Chris Waring (USA) used his strong backhand attack and local knowledge to surf his way to the Final and almost overtake the in-form Igarashi. Waring pocketed the highest score of the Final with an 8.37 on a left-hander going toward the pier before heading back right into the shore break, finishing with a massive frontside re-entry. However, in the end he was caught searching for another solid backup wave as time ticked away.
