Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

it was a 10, perhaps the only positive real 10, i've ever seen in a contest. I would give you a 10 for that usage of commas, crabmeat. Speed, power, flow, variety of repertoire. It had everything! thank you, this means the world to me! i've worked really hard in the offseason with my commas. I'd al...

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

we started inching towards irrelevancy in the Thundercloud Fiji swell when pros dodged once in a lifetime cloudbreak. I do believe that was a turning point. well kinda, in hindsight.

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

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...
