Despite a strong performance, Lennox Head’s Stu Kennedy missed out on the top spot in his round one heat in Brazil.
The 27-year-old stayed hot on the heals of heat leader Julian Wilson…
Scoring an impressive 7.33 on his first ride.
“Stu Kennedy, and that wingspan out for a beautiful rail grab now, links it again, this pocket is waiting for him, he squares it nicely, great control”
Kennedy pulled off an impressive air, with less than ten minutes on the clock.
But was unable to catch his fellow countryman.
“Stu Kennedy, the moment you talk about him, looking for a 9.02 here, not going to find it on that”
He’ll have one more chance to redeem himself in round two.
