Brisa Hennessy started better, catching a good wave of 7.17. Tatiana didn’t give up and responded with a beautiful 7.83, with the right to attacks on the lip of the wave. The Brazilian’s advantage, however, did not last long. Minutes later, the Costa Rican got a 5.50, regaining the lead. Tatiana, in turn, didn’t let it go. With 14 minutes to go, the gaúcha landed a beautiful right and took 7.93 from the judges, returning to first place.

Needing an 8.59 to turn, Brisa surfed to a 4.83 minutes later. However, two minutes from the end, Tatiana Weston-Webb found the best wave of the heat and received a 9.27, burying any chance of a reaction from the Costa Rican. Not having much to do, Brisa still surfed to a 6.50, saying goodbye to Jeffreys Bay with a 17.20 to 13.67 loss.
