Semi Finals went down in Portland the Tige Pro/Am.  It looked much like the quarters, except this time people got cut. In the first heat a semi a wake GD came out a stomped a few bangers but just couldn’t put it together to take down the consistent riding of Shinn and Hansen.  Reed and Stu both threw down wake to wake late shuvs and even Reed went two for two on the finger flip for the weekend.  Unfortunately Blue Lake Park has a very high water level right now so this is causing less than perfect water conditions, and with the Malibu look alike Tige they were using the wake was pretty off and on.  Probably the sickest thing about this weekend is the fact that James Balzer is back competing and even though his leg isn’t 100% yet and still looks like he should be taking it easy, but he was able to hold in with the heat.  BT and Balzer rode pretty well but couldn’t put it down to take out Brian Grubb and Grant Roberts consistent riding.  The top two are moving on to the Finals tomorrow and it should be a good one!
