Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

true. the death of surfing was awarding Dane a 7.33 at haleiwa for the biggest, gnarliest turn i've ever seen in my life. it was a 10, perhaps the only positive real 10, i've ever seen in a contest.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

yep, it was a diametric shift in surfing. the compass was pointed towards the lands of safe and vanilla, and we've been sailing that path ever since.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

and how's the fucking irony of brazilians bagging margs and possibly (in the future) dodging her in their droves, when the very next stop is the most unpalatable of places.

rio.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

my take on Margies. https://beachgrit.com/2018/04/30402/ I think they (the wsl) can use the margs narrative to be the catalyst for an all-pool world tour. they want that transition; but they know the purists will solidly undermine and devalue an all-pool tour at every point. now soph has painted th...

Thought you weren't surfing anyway?

Re: Easter Classic 2018

yeah, sterile is the word huh. i wonder if the men are disillusioned with the criteria they have to surf to? i was speaking to joycey about free surfing and comp surfing, and i got the feeling he wanted to say so much more than he did. but i sense it always gets back to what would the league & commi...

Re: Easter Classic 2018

Sophie Goldschmidt some good to be there and see the emotional core of the sport on show, it was kind of the opposite of the weird manufactured vibe that emerges from so much of what the WSL produces. i wonder if that little insight of the night she surely woulda caught, will have any bearing or im...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

is that because of the injury? i pity you if so. couldn't deal with only surfing when it's clean or pumping. that would limit it to probably a dozen or more times a year. as it is, i need to be in the water 2-3 times a week minimum, otherwise i'd need to drink aldi whiskey just to stay sane. don't ...
