Re: Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Slater?

ah dont get me wrong, im still all for KS to get 10. when he retires after this, its just going to be known as the post slater era, and just about every title holder will be compared to slater... thats the only thing that will suk from KS getting 10.... probably the greatest achievement in sporting ...

Re: Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Slater?

But surfing is hardly like most competitive sports, certainly not Tennis. How much has Kelly won this year? $300K. Jordy has won half that and Dane only $80K. That would hardly cover the travel and hotel bills. But how much do they get paid by their sponsors? Their prize money would hardly make a d...

Re: Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Slater?

I hope he wins 10 world titless. but can he then retire and give someone else a go. well this is the thing right. from what i can see, everyone winning a title will be compared to competing in slaters era. for example "since surfer x just won the world title in 2012 - do you think he would of beate...

Re: so what happens to the surfers who dont make it into the 32?

Maybe a top 25? when i looked at the list today i thought the same thing.... a top 25 would make things very exciting in heats, as almost every surfer would be top notch.... i understand that tennis has a one ranking system. but how do you guarantee yourself a place in the big games? by being in th...

so what happens to the surfers who dont make it into the 32?

anyone explain this one to me?

how do they re-qualify if they drop out of the top 32?

do they have to wait until next year to re-qualify?

oracle wisdom appreciated...

Re: Fat cats gettin' fatter

in regards to choice of clothes, id much rather purchase something from a surf brand than say, target, david jones, glue or whatever shop is cool....

i guess we have a certain image of ourselves, and the surf brands do a good job of supplying that image....

dont really see parko coming back from this at all.... i mean, yeah he will recover, but in regards to the guy getting a world title... it just seems to me like it keeps slipping away from him... last year, he had mega focus, and then injured himself.... this year, the race is still close, with an e...
