The new music is just young. Trap, cloud rap, normcore, trill, etc. Basically downtempo music for kids these days.

Kelly didn’t get robbed. He got mugged, raped, and beaten by the judges.

Do the people who judge these things even surf?

Owen always gets over scored in Australia. Kelly was unlucky to have him in his heat. If he doesn't do good at Bells, will the GOAT call it early, like Mick did? Maybe after the pool event?

Went back and watched kelly's heat. I didn't see why the other two score better than him.

Looks like they waited but there's a crumble on the wave. According to Stab, Dbah was good this morning. Not gonna lie I really liked watching them at dbah.

Pretty obvious Kelly lost that heat because of strategy and lost it fair and square.

He used a typically a winning strategy for surfing onshore short period beachbreak that I can remember working killer when I was a grom - trade wave quality for opportunity by isolating yourself from other competitors. Catch more waves, and therefore more opportunity for scores.

In this case it didn't work as planned.

He chose a bank down the beach where he hoped to catch a lot of waves by himself and hopefully do some sort of massive maneuver in the 8 - 10 point range but that opportunity never materialized.

The waves near the jetty were curvy and the waves Kelly was surfing were slopey with an occasional section that stood up.

Slater whiffed turns on his stubby board cause the wave quality didn't allow to maximize quality surfing .

Owen on the other hand was able to do some really high quality turns and Mr. Crisanto was able to work through series of turns and also the highly difficult under the lip reverse.

Further, being a 3 man heat, when Slater decided to surf up the beach it allowed the other two guys to trade off predictable rights by the jetty.

Slater basically gambled and lost.

WSL really messed up with the schedule yesterday. No doubt under considerable pressure from the Qld mob to get some time in at Snapper. I wonder how much they get paid? Not sure I’m liking the 2019 model so much.

Surfing level is crazy.
