Canadians competing in Round of 16


Thursday 14th

	Heat # 1	Round of 16	Oct/14/2010
	Red	 2nd place	13.17	Peter Devries	CAN  




Josh Kerr has won the O誰eill Cold Water Classic Canada 2010 ahead of Eric Geiselman in clean 4ft conditions on another epic sunny day in Tofino.

"It was a bit of a slow final," said Josh after his and Eric痴 fourth heat of the day. "You池e blood is pumping a lot harder to keep you warm. It takes it out of you," he said. "But we are surfing in Canada it痴 a beautiful place. You池e in the mountains but by the beach. It痴 a trip. I am stoked!"

"It was great surfing against Eric," said Josh. "He痴 one of the best new up and coming surfers around. I致e respected that guy for years."

And Eric showed exactly why earlier in a tense semi final heat. Under pressure in the semis Eric pulled out the wave of the event with a spectacular aerial, scoring a 9.10 and going into the final ahead of an on-form Shaun Cansdell.

Much of Tofino shut up shop on this freezing cold but sunny day to hit the beach for the final, despite local hero Peter Devries having been knocked out earlier in the day by eventual winner Josh Kerr.

"I知 disappointed, but still happy I made it through a few heats," said Peter "I was hoping to make it to the quarters. That was one of those little goals I had in my own mind. But losing against Josh there痴 nothing wrong with that!"

Josh Kerr on the other hand wasn稚 entirely convinced the local community would agree: "I came in I was all apologizing to everyone when I came out. I think I should keep a low profile in town this evening."

The O誰eill Cold Water Classic Series now moves to its final event of the year in Santa Cruz, California in what is lining up to be a dramatic finale. With Shaun Cansdell having reached the semis here in Canada he now sits top of the rankings ahead of Stuart Kennedy. But still in the running are an on form Glenn Hall as well as Dion Atikinson.

The O誰eill Cold Water Classic California will start on October 18th


Kerr Tops Geiselman to Win ASP 6-Star O誰eill Cold Water Classic Canada

TOFINO, British Columbia/Canada (Thursday, October 14, 2010) Josh Kerr (Tweed Heads, AUS), 26, won the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 6-Star O誰eill Cold Water Classic Canada over Eric Geiselman (New Smyrna Beach, FL), 22, in peaky two-to-four foot (1 metre) surf at North Chesterman Beach in Tofino, British Columbia.

Surfers competing in the ASP 6-Star O誰eill Cold Water Classic Canada are out to capitalize on the valuable ratings points on offer to help them qualify for the prestigious ASP World Tour.

Kerr quietly navigated through the early rounds of O誰eill Cold Water Classic competition and was extremely patient in his bout against Geiselman and his careful wave-selection in the inconsistent conditions saw the progressive Australian take out his second major ASP victory of the 2010 season.

"It wasn稚 the best final, but we池e up here in Canada surfing, so it痴 all good," Kerr said. "I never really felt like I had a cracking heat this whole event, but things just kept going my way. It痴 my first time here and it痴 a beautiful place so I知 stoked to have won."

Kerr痴 path to the final was no easy task, as the talented natural-footer topped Australian prodigy Julian Wilson (Coolum, AUS), 22, and defending event champion Peter Devries (Tofino, BC), 27, before defeating Geiselman in the final.

"It was great surfing against Eric (Geiselman)," Kerr said. "He痴 one of the best up-and-coming surfers around and I致e respected him for years. I have so much respect for Julian (Wilson) and Pete (Devries) too. I致e seen him in videos and know how good of a surfer he is. For a guy that does about one comp a year he knows how to do them well."

Geiselman looked unstoppable throughout the final day of competition, blasting the highest heat-total of the day, a 16.34 out of 20 in his Quarterfinals matchup against Mitch Coleborn (Sunny Coast, AUS), 22, before launching the event痴 highest single wave score, a 9.10 out of 10 for a massive kerrupt flip in his Semifinals bout against Shaun Cansdell (AUS), 27, but was unable to find the scores needed to top Kerr for the win.

"It would have been nice to have won, but I知 stoked to get a result," Geiselman said. "I haven稚 really had one this year, so to make the Final is great. I致e had the best time ever up here in Canada and this is a great way to start the remainder of the year."

Cansdell was another top performer throughout the O誰eill Cold Water Classic痴 entirety, and his equal 3rd place finish establishes him as the frontrunner for the additional $50,000 for this year痴 O誰eill Cold Water Classic Series champion.

"I知 really stoked to get a 3rd in this event," Cansdell said."Obviously I知 a bit disappointed to not have made the final but I知 just so stoked to get a result, especially at the tail end of the year with the Cold Water Series. Hopefully I can get a result in Santa Cruz as well."

Wilson, who was hungry for a win at this year痴 ASP 6-Star event, was in lethal form throughout the final day痴 action, but was unable to find a rhythm against eventual event winner, Kerr, and finished equal 3rd overall.

"Obviously I wanted to win this event, but a 3rd is nothing to be disappointed about," Wilson said. "I was focusing too much on trying to do airs out there. I had a wave where I probably could have got the score if I had done turns, but I was looking for an air. Hopefully I can move on from this event and post a good result going into Santa Cruz."
