Burrow crashed out to fellow Australian Lincoln Taylor after both men were charged with a double-interference call that could have gone either way. Both men were docked half of their points for their second waves which saw Burrow crash out.

Burrow's surprise elimination follows that of Joel Parkinson the previous day.

Other big names to crash out included: Willian Cardoso and Heitor Alves of Brazil, brothers CJ and Damien Hobgood, Brett Simpson of the USA, Hawaiian 2012 Vans Triple Crown winner Sebastian Zietz and Australians Kai Otton, Kieren Perrow and Matt Wilkinson.
