Am I very wrong to suggest that pro surfing badly needs gambling I mean how many more years can the billionaire keep plowing it in. How many more British former Rugby Union executives can he employ before he wakes up to the fact that he's been taken to the fcuken cleaners by the world's laziest spor...

I was going to say. Like how do any of you manage to get out of bed in the mornings. "Oh God what are these shoe things with their unbearably complex 'laces'!" "Oh dear! I am likely to fall down the 'stairs'!"

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

Yeah...but the more I think about it, the more I imagine the WSL is gutted at not being on the spot

all that money and effort and they missed it.

Re: Pipe Masters 2017

and why so many people find him hard to take. btw I wonder what the WSL honchos are thinking now about their plans to pluck the world tour finale out of the world's greatest surf zone.

The set where Jeremy got the first wave and scored a mid 7, Gabriel had the second wave all to himself and fcuked it up --...
