MORNING UPDATE: DAY 9
The final day has started with a bang. There's a new swell in the water, it's a packed house on the beach and a Brazilian Quarterfinal matchup between Miguel Pupo and Filipe Toledo featured some high-flying action and saw Pupo move through the the Semifinals.
Out in the water now is the heat of the event. The 11-time Champ, Kelly Slater versus the talented Dane Reynolds. Following their heat will be the the other two Quarterfinal heats, featuring Gabriel Medina versus Adriano DeSouza and John John Florence versus Julian Wilson.
