Re: Where did you surf today ?

Meanwhile I am hiding down the south end of Manly on low tide (due to other duties)....on these days I apply my motto of knowing one's level of incomptenence

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

John John is world champ (Medina knocked out in quarter finals). And agree, Pipeline is the place to have the final event of the year (even if the surf is not great there is an aura about the whole place - waves, crowds, close to the action for broadcast, history).

Re: Just general surfing stuff

And Quick/Rip/Bong still sponsor 5 of the 11 events while 4 events have NO lead sponsor (Marg river, Bali, tahiti, surf ranch). Doesn't say much for global coverage and advertising bucks flowing into this dynamic Olympic level sport.

You do wonder how this model continues to survive ???
