Why are they speeding up the waves on the webcast? That's weird. Never noticed it before.

Without fantasy surf and a chance to win some money, I probably wouldn't even watch highlights of this

8.6 for felipe? I didn't see the whole heat but that didn't look like a very difficult wave for a pro

looked like slater got dumped with the jetski at the end of the heat so felipe ended up with priority and slater took forever to get back out, weird the announcers didn't really say anything about it. Slater will probably talk about it in his post heat interview, maybe they wont let him talk about it?
wonder if the jetski driver was brazilian? lol

I thought the same thing, but I think Slater caught a closeout that they didn't show. Cause he got a tiny score for something around that time.

JJF limping back to the competitors area mid heat. Uh oh.

slaters 9.5 was by far the best wave of the contest. 15/10 if possible

That 8.6 for Blowleado was NOT an 8.6. Slater got robbed in Brazil, and not by a coke-fueled tranny, as is usual. Slaters drop alone was worth a 7.5

wel shit. jjf pulled out with a hurt knee. i figure why not surf the heat and just go for tubes? might advance - surely a better chance than pulling out. he needs ratings points to beat madonna for the title.
thankfully kolohe beat him solidly

There's only a few lefts on the tour, almost all rights, and when conditions are around normal, they all end up overall pretty similar: headhigh to overhead rippable. Only Tahiti is 100% lefthander! Pipe has Backdoor.

Guys can make their way up the dream tour's rankings through pumping, bunny hopping and standard air reversing.

He still has the lead but yeah, maybe just paddle out with a brace and look for tubes/cutbacks?
