A year after he made the final of the Vans Would Cup of Surfing, Santa Cruz native Nat Young failed to make the quarterfinals of the same event at Sunset Beach on the North Shore of Hawaii on Tuesday.

Young scored a 9.67 two-wave point total to land behind heat winner Perth Sandlick [17.23], of Australia; runner-up Ricardo Dos Santos [13.43], of Brazil; and Hawaii’s own John John Florence [11.44], who was third and also eliminated in the Round of 32.

The World Cup of Surfing is the second stop in the Triple Crown of Surfing. Up next, the holding period for the Billabong Pipe Masters, in memory of Andy Irons, is scheduled to run from Dec. 8-20.
