Hawaii's Mamiya onto Quarterfinals of US Open of Surfing
The men's quarterfinals are set at the Vans US Open of Surfing presented by Swatch, a World Surf League Qualifying Series (QS) 10,000 event.
The contest lost some of its top-tier contenders on Friday at Huntington Beach.
Weslley Dantas was eliminated at the hands of Hawaii's Barron Mamiya in round 5. Mamiya, the Oahu-native, put the final stamp on the heat with a 6.23 (out of a possible 10) just before the ten-minute mark and before the ocean slowed down to offer little opportunity as the final horn sounded.
The Vans US Open of Surfing presented by Swatch will resume Saturday, August 3, at 7:30 a.m. PT in Huntington Beach. The event will be broadcast LIVE on WorldSurfLeague.com and Facebook.com/WSL. Also, check local listings for coverage from the WSL’s broadcast partners.
