Lakey Peterson (USA) and Italo Ferreira (BRA) have won the Corona Bali Protected presented by Hurley.
The final day saw incredible performances in clean waves at Keramas on Bali’s east coast, allowing the world’s best surfers to put on a show at one of the most high-performance waves on the planet.
South Africa’s Jordy Smith (ZAF) finished third overall, losing to Ferreira in their Semifinal clash.
Despite Smith posting two excellent rides, an 8.0 and an 8.93, the Brazilian overtook his South African rival with a perfect 10-point ride and then went on to win the event, defeating Michel Bourez (PYF) in the Final..
Ferreira cemented himself as a bonafide World Title contender by reclaiming the Jeep Leader Jersey and taking his second win of the 2018 season.
Ferreira held the two highest single-wave scores of the event and three of the event’s top heat totals. The goofy-footer launched and landed massive aerials, attacked the lip with precision, and threaded backhand tubes throughout to prove himself as the worthy winner of the Corona Bali Protected.
The next event on the Championship Tour is the Corona Open JBay. The worlds best surfers will be competing from 2 – 16 July in Jeffreys Bay.
The Corona Open JBay forms part of the JBay Winterfest, a multi sport event that takes place every year in Jeffreys Bay.
