Waves of the Day: Watch the Best of the Rip Curl Pro

It wasn't even noon on Tuesday before the upsets began at Bells. The sun was just rising, in fact, when Hawaiian Tour sophomore Zeke Lau began paddling in tiny, intimidating circles around World Champ John John Florence in their Round 3 heat. Lau's tactic worked, and he set the tone for the day by ultimately eliminating Florence from the event. Elsewhere, in a case of competing allegiances for fans, Brazilian Italo Ferreira ousted fellow Brazilian Filipe Toledo. And later, with less than a minute left on the clock, Brazilian Silvana Lima found a wave that clinched her Quarterfinal win over three-time World Champ Carissa Moore. Here are some of the best waves so far from the Rip Curl Women's Pro and men's Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.
