Matty Wilkinson (AUS)..BELGAS, Peniche/Portugal (Wednesday, October 13, 2010) - The Rip Curl Pro Portugal completed Round 4 this afternoon in punchy two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves at the backup venue of Belgas.. .Event No. 8 of 10 on the 2010 ASP World Tour, the Rip Curl Pro Portugal executed the three-man, non-elimination Round 4 this afternoon with surfers pushing the boundaries of high-performance surfing and the event setting up for a possible finish tomorrow.. .Jordy Smith (ZAF), 22, current ASP World No. 2, proved the form surfer of the day, netting a near-perfect 9.93 out of a possible 10 for an incredible aerial 360.. ."That score didn't change my approach much actually," Smith said. "Jadson (Andre) and Owen (Wright) can pull big scores out at any moment. I knew I could ease up and needed a solid backup score.". .One of the remaining threats in the hunt for the 2010 ASP World Title, Smith remains nonchalant when discussing his plans for the end of the year.. ."It would be nice to win but there's more to life than just the title," Smith said. "It's an incredible opportunity for me to have for someone at my age and I'm just looking forward to the end of the year. I'm enjoying myself.". .Kelly Slater (USA), 38, reigning nine-time ASP World Champion and current ASP World No. 1, dominated his Round 4 heat today, taking advantage of the non-elimination format.Photo: joliphotos.com
