New Zealand surfers Paige Hareb and Sarah Mason have had a disastrous day at the latest Dream Tour event in Brazil.

Both lost their second round heats to be eliminated from the Billabong Pro and record costly 13th place finishes.

Hareb lost a low-scoring encounter to struggling French surfer Pauline Ado.

Hareb could manage just 8.17 out of 20 for her two bets waves in the small left hand waves at Arpoador. Ado bettered that with 10.00 to move into the third round for the first time this year.

Mason (10.00) was outclassed by Hawaiian Coco Ho (16.57).

The results won't help either Kiwi with just two events left on this year's tour.

Hareb was placed at No 9 on the rankings with the top 10 gaining automatic qualification for next year's tour.

She will need to rediscover her killer instincts in France and the United States in July.

Mason was 13th going into Brazil and with limited funding to contest the backup events needs to make the most of her injury wildcards in the last two World Tour events.
