The contest was run as 4-man heats, which saw Jake Schettewi and Takara Ishii become the first two-man to seal their place into the winners’ final – followed by Takuma Sugi and Z Schettewi, who advanced through the second semifinal.

In the final, Takuma Sugi produced a brilliant display of wave rides as he excelled in the light wind conditions – with the wind dropping in the final – to post a total heat score of 14.17 points – which was the joint highest heat total with Ishii, who also posted 14.17 points during his opening heat. To scored an excellent 8 point wave ride with a stylish aerial. The 17-year-old racked up a total of 5 waves in the final and was able to find a 6.17 point backup to deservedly win.
