Formally the Exel Pro. Final day is today. Yesterday was a good day for 4 out of the 8 people pictured below. Drew Pringle, Cheeseburger and Adam Crawford all advanced into the round of 64 and pocketed $700-800. As soon as they cash their checks they’ll officially be pro. Well, Burger actually turned pro a couple years ago. Mason waited on the beach all day, for the last two days, trying to get into the contest because he was an alternate. He finally got in and made good on the opportunity and advanced out of his heat. Mason’s Dad has won this contests countless times and Mason finished 2nd a couple years ago and is looking to follow in Dad’s footsteps. Also, Kawai Lindo advanced this morning on his …Lost Surfboard.
