“I’m super stoked you know, that says it all. I tried not to think about the heats too much, just going out there and surfing,” said Robinson. “It was such a fun event. I just want to thank everyone for all the support, Iquique is an amazing place. I’m super stoked I came, because I was a late entry and it was unexpected and just a spur of the moment decision and that’s how some of the best things happen in life. I’m glad I came. I love Chile!”
