A heartbreak for some, a celebration of clutch surfing for others. As Joe Turpel mentioned above, Griffin was on fire yesterday at Teahupo’o. After some heavy wipeouts in his opening runs that dropped him in the elimination round, the surfer from San Clemente, Calif. lit up, sinking incredibly deep at the start of his round of 16 against Yago Dora for score a downside. 9.00.
