TweetFacebookThe past week must have felt like a dream he never wanted to wake up from.

On Tuesday, he beat home an impressive field of West Australians to earn a wildcard into round one of the Pro.

For most surfers, this would be a just reward for years of hard work and anything else would be a surprising bonus.

On Wedneday, the first day of competiton Davies found himself in an all-Australian heat against Matt Wilkinson and surfing legend Mick Fanning.

A solid 7.50 on his second wave was enough to see Davies finish second, in front of Wilkinson who struggled to adapt to the conditions.

This set up a Thursday round two match-up with reigning world champion Gabriel Medina.

Anyone that suggested Davies had a shot at knocking off Medina waslaughed at.

But when the two returnedtoshore, no-one was laughing.

Both surfers scored 6.67 on their first wave before Davies dropped into a barrel and rode it out the other side for a 8.50.

Doubling the score of the reigning world-champ silenced the critics and set up a round three rematch with Mick Fanning, a three time world champion who last month won the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach.

Saturday dawned with Davies name making international headlines and being chanted by the crowd.

Hitting the water early in the morning it took a little while for Davies to get going, placing third in his heat behind Nat Young and Sebastian Zietz.

Surely this was the sign that the pressure had got too much and the competition too tough?

Nope.

Surfing for his spot in the competition in the first heat of round five, Davies stuck a 9.10 and an 8.00 to take a third opponent out of the competition in Frenchman Jeremy Flores who fought for a higher scoring wave right up until the last second.
