LOWER TRESTLES, California / USA (Monday, September 19, 2011)   Gabriel Medina (BRA).  - The Hurley Pro at Trestles, Event No. 7 of 11 on the 2011 ASP World Title Series, recommenced in rippable two-to-four (1 metre) surf at Lowers this morning for Round 2 of competition, and it was the youngsters lighting things up in the elimination man-on-man bouts.. .Jadson Andre (BRA), 21, took the day's top honors despite the inconsistent nature of his heat and locked into two lefts to earn the day's top scores. The high-flying Brazilian built momentum against dangerous Hawaiian Dusty Payne (HAW), 22, launching an 8.17 (out of 10), and shortly found another left and unloaded a powerful forehand carve and finished the wave with an inverted air-reverse to notch a 9.43 (out of 10).. ."The last few years I've been working on my carves and the waves I learned how to surf on, the only thing you can do is big airs on the beach breaks," Andre said. "It's the first thing I learned how to do and I know how to do them well. When the wind's onshore like that it's way easier to do airs, I saw Gabriel (Medina) do the same.". .Andre, who is often praised for his aerial game, is equally well-rounded in his turns and the talented goofy-footer knows to keep an open mind in his heats when approaching the Lower Trestles lineup.. ."In the morning, with the off-shores, it's not as easy to do the airs," Andre said. "We'll see what happens, you can't just think about the airs, you have to think about what's going to be the best turn to do at that time. Hopefully I can keep going.". .Andre will take on compatriot Adriano de Souza (BRA), 23, in Round 3 of competition.   Photo: joliphotos.com
