Everyone’s been burned before. Hell, everyone’s probably burned someone at some point. But one place where most wouldn’t expect to get burned is mid-heat, and by a bodyboarder to boot.
That’s exactly what happened to Kolohe Andino in the second round of heat four. While surfing absolutely pristine conditions against Jadson Andre, Andino paddled onto a serious runner, proceeded to park himself inside the tube a few times, then watched from deep as a guy on the shoulder kicked in and kicked out, effectively shutting down any attempt at escaping the barrel that Kolohe might’ve had. It was the wave of the heat, and Jadson ended up walking away with the win.
