The general vibe around the world: "we missed it". So here are some of the best bits from the Hurley Pro and Swatch Women's Pro finals, where Tyler Wright and Jordy Smith were the eventual winners over Steph Gilmore and Joel Parkinson.
Steph Gilmore kicked things off with a near excellent ride in Semi 1.

Tyler Wright was magic over Sage Erickson in Semi 2
Hometown wildcard hero Tanner Gudauskas almost matched up to Joel Parkinson in Semi 1. Almost.
Filipe Toledo was great, but Jordy Smith was greater in Semi 2.
Tyler Wright has been shining this season, adding another trophy to her cabinet.
And Jordy Smith showed everyone he still has the ability to win - it's been awhile.
