Post Show: J-Bay Goes Wild

Wednesday's action at the Corona Open J-Bay got off to a stunning start, as Filipe Toledo delivered the the best aerial surfing ever seen in competition during his do-over battle with Jordy Smith and Julian Wilson. The Brazilian stuck two lofty alley-oops in a row on one wave to earn a perfect 10, and the judges would have handed him a 15 if they could have. But the big moments kept coming, and every time the crowd figured they'd seen everything a surf event can offer, J-Bay delivered more surprises, including the elimination of John John Florence by rookie Frederico Morais in a crazy Quarterfinal battle. Ronnie Blakey and Peter Mel were joined by Mick Fanning and Shaun Tomson to break it all down.
