VANS 2014 US OPEN OF SURFING: DAY 7 JOEL TUDOR DUCT-TAPE INVITATIONAL PRESENTED BY PACIFICO; MEN’S COMPETITION NARROWS TO 16 BAD ASSES

The Vans Duct Tape Invitational presented by Pacifico is the brain child of surf innovator Joel Tudor. For nearly a decade Joel had wanted to create a contest that combined the fun, family vibe of 'club' contest, travel and progressive surfing on traditional longboards into a traveling circus now known as the Vans Duct Tape Invitational. The Duct Tape quickly became the 'main' stage for a new generation of loggers such as Alex Knost, James Perry, Ryan Burch, Tyler Warren and a host of others who had been largely ignored by the surf world. In 2010 the first Duct Tape took place in conjunction with the East Coast Surfing Championships and since then has traveled the globe providing an exciting new twist in surfing culture and competition.

The contest is comprised of 16 invitees competing on traditional logs, single fin, no plugs, 9'2 minimum, and 12lbs. In addition there is a no-interference, best wave shared aspect where surfers are encouraged to ride the same wave and see what they can make of it together. Nose-riding, cutbacks, and all other maneuvers are scored but it is style that is the back bone of what the Duct Tape really brings to surfing. In 2014 the Duct Tape will return to Huntington Beach for a second year to be part of the Vans US Open of Surfing before traveling to Nova Scotia, Canada for the first time, in 2015 keep your eyes peeled for a Duct Tape Invitational near you!

MEANWHILE, IN THE BIG SHOW …. The Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Prime-rated Vans US Open of Surfing completed Round 4 in one-to-three foot waves at Huntington Beach Pier on day seven, whittling the field down to the final 16 surfers remaining.

Josh Kerr (AUS), 30, current ASP World No. 10, looked electric in this morning’s challenging conditions at Huntington Beach, connecting crisp snaps and lofty airs against South African dangerman Beyrick Devries (ZAF), 21. Kerr overtook the lead in the back half of the heat to take the win.

Jordy Smith (ZAF), 26, combated fellow ASP Dream Tour campaigner Aritz Aranburu (ESP), 29, in the Round of 24, and the South African powerhouse relied on his refined small-wave equipment to secure his Round of 16 berth.

Filipe Toledo (BRA), 19, entangled in a tight battle with Virginia Beach darkhorse Michael Dunphy (USA), 24. Dunphy held the lead until the dying seconds of the affair, but the Brazilian connected a clean outside snap followed by an air-reverse, overtaking the American for a Round of 16 spot.

Brett Simpson (USA), 29, capitalized on his local knowledge of the Huntington Beach lineup, catching crucial waves under the priority of Peterson Crisanto (BRA), 22. While Simpson fell on a crucial wave at the dying minutes of the bout, the ASP Top 34 campaigner edged out the Brazilian by a score of 10.83 to 10.20 while moving to the Round of 16.
