Men's elimination round heat 1 went on a brief safety hold. “just for safety precaution, we had to put the heat on hold and assess the situation. we are always on high alert since it’s not a typical place to expect a shark encounter but we are always on the lookout and the right call was made at the time.” after the water safety team investigated, it is believed to be a patch of seaweed. the heat was able to continue after our safety team confirmed that the area was safe. #ripcurlpro@ripcurl_aus
