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 ???

Re: Kelly's wave.

And the 'model' works 20 hours a day (4 hours for machine maintenance and cleaning) for 365 days a year. Just wait until places like Dubai build one - all part of the airport experience.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

NB's Tuesday and today. The run of swell just keeps giving and pretty good fun out there (but crowds although lots of them really don't know what they are doing, apart from getting in the way).

Re: Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2017

With the women surfers arriving in a darkened bus, surfing behind screens and in wetsuits/head covering and then leaving the country before the results are known.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Squeezed in a few at Manly before the high tide and wind. Worth the effort.

Re: Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2017

yep, my thoughts exactly....closeout after closeout.

Now the pros know what us mortals often deal with except we wouldn't even bother to go out (but I would if I was paid or my sponsor told me to).

Re: Just general surfing stuff

How does WSL pay their daily rates ?
