De magrets en sushis, du nid douillet au tatami, housse de surf en guise de Kimono, je trace sur Tokyo depuis Acapulco. Le spot est à 1h30 en bus de Tokyo. Déboussolé, aucun repère, je suis complètement perdu à mon arrivée à l’aéroport. Le soleil levant a abandonné sa place habituelle.
Paul Cesar Distinguin (FRA) pulled off the highest score of the event after pulling into a deep barrel in his Quarterfinal heat against Krystian Kymerson (BRA). Paul Cesar Distinguin is a Semifinalist. "That was an incredible wave," said Distinguin. "I was really deep in the tube and it felt great coming out. I also landed a few airs, so I’m stoked to have gotten the highest score of the event. I competed here last year, but I didn’t do that well. I’m happy that I made it this far. The waves are a lot better this year. They’re opening up more and you can do a lot of turns, airs, hacks and even some barrels."
