Ok so I tried another competition against 2 short board surfer bots. This time it didn't go as well as my last epic win.

I paddled out really strongly using a 4 card and added a stoke token to get out to the 5 zone as I saw a big 5 wave coming at the horizon.

On turn 2 that size 5 wave turned into a barrel! OMG if I catch a perfect outside barrel that would be amazing because barrels are worth 5 bonus points and catching a perfect wave means you get 1 bonus point for every card you use riding it in. Unfortunately, I failed to catch the barrel... as I picked a "2" card and the wave revealed a "2" barrel.

I guess I never fully recovered from that wipeout on the outside...

My next wave also ended with a premature wipeout...

Near the end of the game, I caught another perfect wave, did some really fancy tricks on it but got snaked by YELLOW right before hitting the beach

So Neptune was not in my favor this game and the bot competitors were particularly vicious with their snaking.

No worries, these heats go very quickly so on to the next one!

Final scores:

BLUE (me) 1+3=4
YELLOW (bot) 3+3.5=6.5
RED (bot) 3.5+5=8.5
