Totally disagree. Gabs' backdoor wave was so much more technically difficult. He deserved that heat and every heat this comp.


If technicality was judged, then Slater would have got higher than a 3 for his magic trick yesterday. Jordy got bigger, gnarlier waves and rode them perfectly. Medina was served that win by the judges and WSL pandering to the Brazzo audience.


Wah.

Slater's wave was luck, and he fell. There was nothing technical about it.



Haha, good one. He did a similar magic trick with that air at Trestles a couple of years ago. The Brazzos have got the WSL in their pocket. They need to milk that audience, so Medina gets his scores bumped. Jordy beat Medina, but the judges had Medina's little Jesus in their mouths, so he went through.


The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.

My guess is the conditions will still be good Tuesday morning but it may be too big. They still need 2 days, right? I just hate to see it end in 4' backdoor.



Yep, they are finishing the " Pipe Masters " in dwindling 4' surf.

Holding to true form for the Commecial Contest Clowns at the northshore circus...



...I am goingoutside now....watch out for Tues. day...surf might be a little less clowning around...

I'm not a Medina fan but damn that was a good final.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

They never do.

Nevertheless, let's hope the guys that tear down the scaffolding don't just leave their discarded nails all over the beach, the beach park, and in the sand like they've been known to do in the past.

Wah.

Obviously he never planned to fall, but there is probably a handful of surfers in the world with the ability to recover from that situation and then actually exit and make the barrel.

It's much more than luck.

Gabby's 9.10 against Jordy was overscored IMO. But his 6.33 was a major underscore, I didn't get that.

That 7.27 for Jordy was just right, I could see his board the entire time.

Gabby deserved it this year and then some. He is indeed the best surfer today, what's fair is fair.

Beware of Italo and Filipe, they will probably get a title before Julian does.
