The point is winning heats, making judges happy, does not equate to being the best surfers on the planet. It is just wsl marketing hype.
If these guys don't buy into it more power to them, but the ones' who do are getting a reality check.


So who are the people in your opinion that are the best in the world? They established a criteria and created venues that represents a good variety of surf. Is it perfect, no but overall I think it represents pretty well.

Why isn't Robo on the CT? He's been trying for awhile.



easiest answer, the ones having the most fun. wink

other than that it is a dumb notion. And why is it even important, other than making money from siphoning it from kooks who think it is important?
One day it's one guy another day it is someone else. And if you go w/ he has 3 good days and the other had only 1 good day that makes the 1st guy best on average. Life is not an average.

To think the wsl with all of it's flaws eg scoring, sponsorship influences, mystery judging is a good determiner of what and who is best is laughable.

It was obvious it was none of the golden boys of the wsl yesterday. I would guess the locals enjoyed what they saw.

So what would be your solution? You just seem angry at the system.

Bring back the Pancho Sullivan, Richard Cram, Margo, Dane Reynolds, Elko power surfing. And yes to me style matters.


Agreed. Pros blowing take-offs is epic to see. Highlights how out of this world Jack Robbo's performance was. He got the best waves of the day. Best heat score of the day, and I read somewhere that his 3rd and 4th best waves would have been the second highest heat score of the day too. As one of the commentators said, that was an Andy Irons-esque performance.

Robo's not on tour because not all the waves on tour barrel.

Kelly claimed a 5 in his heat.

solution to what? I see no value or importance to proclaiming the best surfer in the world, since I make no money from it.

Yeah, I am angry at the system just as much as I am angry at world figure skating judging.

No justice, no peace censored

Nah I think konoa surfed pretty safe and ryan was more committed. Maybe the judges got enough flack for throwing excellent scores at him for floaters in Bali.

Really loving Kolohe's meth dealer sunglasses in his post heat interviews.
