Mick Fanning and Taj Burrow were among the top seeds to fall on the final day of competition at the 2013 Rip Curl Pro presented by Ford on Tuesday. In pristine three-to-five foot (1 - 1.5 metres) conditions, rookie Nat Young (USA) was on a tear to the finals as he disposed of Taj Burrow (AUS) in the first major upset of the day. The drama continued as Adriano de Souza (BRA) ended the run of defending event winner Mick Fanning (AUS). Jordy Smith (ZAF) was one of the form surfers of the event but fell to de Souza by 0.04 in the closest heat of the day in semi-final two. In stormy conditions for the Final, de Souza showcased his powerful carving surfing and competitive edge against Young, amassing a combined heat total of (16.26) to be crowned the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach 2013 Champion.
