Brazilian teenager Filipe Toledo was the star of the second day in the Relentless Boardmasters surfing event in Newquay.

The 17-year-old led the charge with a brilliant display of aerial surfing mixed with power and speed manoeuvres.

Toledo, currently 34th on the ASP World Rankings, was in hot form dominating all three of his performances today to advance easily through to Round Five of competition.

The surfer is stamping his name in the group of young Brazilian talent reaching the elite level of professional surfing and pulled the aerial of the event combined with a powerful smash to claim a 9.83 out of 10, the highest single-wave score of the event.

“I got one of the bigger sets of the day and I did a really good first turn and then a little one and a huge air reverse on my backhand and they gave me a 9.83. Now on the low tide I think it is better and I am pretty stoked," he said.

Toledo’s results so far have shown his dominance by achieving the two highest heat totals of the event. Fresh from a recent excellent result in the US, Toledo is gaining momentum and is surfing with confidence as the rounds move forward.

“I’m feeling good and I want to try and get as many points as possible to get on the World Tour. After the US Open I moved up the ranking so I am close and now I want to get the huge points to make the Tour. I got a really good result in the US Open,” he continued

“I made it through to the quarters. Now I try to do my best in this comp and I am relaxed at the moment here. My board is working really well so let’s get on with the next rounds.” 

Event officials ran split banks during the morning session to place the event in a position to possibly crown the 2012 Relentless Boardmasters on Thursday.

Irish top seed Glenn Hall survived a close low-scoring tussle to keep his campaign alive. The 30-year-old's heat came down to the final minutes before Hall marked his authority with a series of his trademark backhand snaps on a long right to receive a solid 6.50 out of 10.

“It wasn’t really an awesome performance but I’m stoked to make it. It was a low scoring heat and everyone was in the same score bracket so it was close at the end and anything could have happened," he said.
