Halfway through the heat sitting in fourth position, Payne posted two near perfect rides to defeat Julian Wilson (Australia), Jeremy Flores (France) and Adam Melling (Australia). Winning the event put Payne in the lead of the VANS Triple Crown, boosted his ASP World Qualifying Series ratings and earned him $40,000 in prize money.
