The final came down to Alejo Muniz from Brazil against Davey Cathels from Australia. Held in pristine 1 to 1.5 metre waves over 40 minutes it was Muniz who claimed victory with a near perfect 9.33 score, adding to a 7.83, leaving Cathels in a position where he needed to replace both his counting scores. Muniz’s win also consolidated his lead in the World Surf League Qualifying Series rankings.
