A Brave performance from Irishman Glenn Hall wasn’t enough to take him through to the 5th round of the Azores Pro 12 as he crashed out at the last 48 stage finishing last in his heat.
Despite being right in the mix for the first half of the heat swapping the lead back and forth between himself and the other competitors, he faded away later on in the contest as Wiggolly Dantas of Brazil showed his class and came out the eventual winner.
Granger Larsen (HAW) was 2nd, Thomas Woods (AUS) was 3rd and of course Glenn Hall (IRE) was 4th.
A big well done must go out to Glenn who surfed hard and gave it all he had, but unfortunately the pack was just too strong this time and hopefully he will learn from this and come back bigger and better!
