The Oakley World Pro Junior Bali moved to Keramas for day three of competition. Bali’s famous right-hand reef break pumped out 4 – 6 foot sets for the remaining heats of the Men’s Round 1 and the first four heats of the man-on-man elimination Round 2. Darmaputra Tonjo (IND) caused the upset of the event thus far, eliminating number two seed Nat Young (USA) in Round 2, sending Young home with a last place finish. Tonjo came bursting out of the gates, netting an 8.00 (out of a possible 10) on his opening ride for a series of super fast snaps and carves. Young was left hunting a 6.67 and caught a wave in the final minutes of the heat, but came up short only managing a 6.10.
