Hawaii surfers shine

Hawaii surfers fared well in the first day of the Association of Surfing Professionals Rusty Xcel Pro at Sunset Beach, in clean, 4- to 6-foot waves.

Some of the highest scores went to Hawaii's Jessie AhQuinn, with a total three-wave count of 21.0 points and one 9.0 score. He was later eliminated.

Chris Malone was solid with a high score of 8.0, 20.3 total. Hawaii's Jason Shibata advanced through two rounds yesterday and will face a tough heat with Kauai's Bruce Irons and Maui's Kaimana Henry in the next round.

There is a 13-day waiting period for the three-day contest, which spans from Oct. 29 to Nov. 10.

Officials don't expect the event to continue tomorrow because of stormy conditions.
