The wind was lighter and the waves were even smaller on the second day. The Youth fleet at the Omaezaki Japan World Cup is quite strong with divisions for under 15 and under 20. In the masters division 12 men are registered.

Hayata Ishii, who is a top pro already was the clear standout taking the U20 win. Local legend Yoshitaka Ikeda took first place in the Masters division.

While conditions never quite materialized to finish the Pro men’s fleet, there was an impressive expression session that went down. Riders took to the water to show their best for a cash prize from main sponsor Spicare. Antoine Albert and Takuma Sugi were the standouts taking first and second respectively. Albert took the win with a clean Air Chacho, while Sugi was a close second pulling a clean Burner. While it may not have been perfect conditions for wave riding, the freestyle talents were able to show their stuff.

There are still days left in the window to complete the Pro division.
