The much anticipated "Clash of the Icons" between Tom Curren and Occy went off in less than perfect conditions today. Tom Curren won the friendly heat with a couple of decent maneuvers on a couple of decent waves. JBay was closing out a little too much, there wasn't much in the way of tubes to be had, and it was so early in the morning that I don't think either surfer could fully see their next section. There is to be a 2nd heat between the two surfers before the Finals.
