I hope that Iggy Pop covered Steve Miller Band's "Take the Money and Run" when he played at Pipeline because that's what this was . . . .

This is the crap that gets me. I'm all for them being passionate and nationalistic to the point of obnoxiousness, but you gotta be gracious in defeat as well. It only translates to egotistical and childish competitors.

At least be passive aggressive about it, like Kelly posting about his wavepool the day after Adriano won.


Yep. I know some cool Brazilians but let's face it, waaaaaay too many of them are douchebag assholes and nobody in the surfing world likes them. For good reason.

There is one big difference between these two: Vagdina took off and went the WRONG way. Does having priority mean you can go right at the other surfer? If it starts to get like this now, then guys can just start landing on one another to prevent each other from taking waves and just say "well, I had priority!"

Agreed. He didn't even try to surf the wave. Not ilegal though so you can't really fault Medina (in fact Kelly is the master of using priority), but the rule as it is does not bode well for surfing in general.


It SHOULD have been illegal because when he turned into Kelly he HIT his board. THAT is illegal. But, of course, because it was a title run, the puss*es decided to overlook it.


Another thing you guys are skipping is the board ditch that Gabs did right after! Pretty lame to me. Intentional at :26 in? Looked it to me. Slaten was able to hold on right?

People saying it's part of the game are dummies. Yeah, using priority is part of the game. Straightening out to try and get contact to get an interference is just a stupid use of the rule. I love that they didn't give an interference to Slater, it would have set a stupid precedent.

Similar to what Adriano did to Jeremy Flores at snapper a few years ago, took off and faded way too deep to initiate contact and get an interference.

The rule is to give you free reign over the lineup, not to engage in contact to get the other person's scores cut in half.

Read (c). A rule Porta and the other judges actually failed on. Clearly no intention to score and they gave him priority back. Need to make new rule and send the judges back to learn the ones we have.

153.07 The Priority Surfer will lose priority if in the opinion of the Head
Judge or Priority Judge they:
(a) Paddle in front of the non-Priority Surfer to deliberately
impede them from catching a wave.
(b) Position themselves in the take off zone to prevent
another Surfer from catching a wave.
(c) Use their priority by either paddling for or taking off on a
wave to block their opponent when the Surfer with priority
appears to have had no intention to score. In this situation
priority can be awarded regardless of which Surfer reaches
the take-off zone first after the Ride.

Slater sums it up perfectly around 2:16

Those kids in the beginning were funny, that dog was funny, slater nailed it, gabby seemed cool in defeat but I'm surprised JJF"s board didn't break with so many pressures on the rails that thing was hammered.

So someone school me on this, because Medina took off second he maintains priority in that situation no matter what?

Seems like something needs a revision, because like was said before, priority is so you can get waves and try to score, not block another surfer from scoring and do nothing with the wave. Boo.

I saw that too. Gabby drops in on slater when Kelly was in a barrel and had no idea medina was even considering the wave, and he couldn't see him, medina straightens out and surfs right into slater, not even attempting to make the wave, or go right, just trying to block him, then he ditches his board right in front of slater, while slater is able to dip it.

The priority rule needs to be changed if this is what it leads to.

And Medina is a punk.

Shit goes wrong and people have to wear helmets or suck meals out of straws for the rest of their lives. You just can't bring that much of your 3rd world shit attitude to the civilized world. Maybe a year suspension would be the best thing that could ever happen to the guy.
