ACE COMES UP TRUMPS AT BELLS BEACH

Meanwhile, Avoca’s Adrian Buchan hit the water in heat two, against South African Jordy Smith and fellow Aussie, Jack Freestone.

The biggest score that Ace could manage in the small conditions was a 4.40.

Freestone needed a mid-range score to make it through to the next round…but he fell agonisingly short.

Buchan is straight through to round three.
