KERAMAS, Bali/Indonesia (Tuesday, June 25, 2013) Sebastien 'Seabass'  Zietz (HAW). - The Oakley Pro Bali resumed competition today and the world-class Balinese righthander of Keramas delivered barreling six-to-eight foot (2 - 2.5 metre) waves for the elimination Round 3.<br />
<br />
Event No. 5 of 10 on the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), the Oakley Pro Bali endured four lay days of small surf before Keramas reawakened today and the world's best surfers threaded barrels, lofted airs and executed turns, whittling the event's original 36-man field down to the final 12.<br />

<br />
Adriano de Souza (BRA), 26, current ASP WCT No. 5, flew the South American flag high today, besting dangerous backhander Matt Wilkinson (AUS), 24, during a round that saw the elimination of three of his fellow Brazilians.<br />
<br />
Michel Bourez (PYF), 27, demolished the rippable afternoon conditions, blending powerful carves with explosive fin-free surfing to post a 16.94 out of a
