Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: J-Bay 2018

there's nothing on the photos page on the men's event site. that's a bit disappointing. i always look forward to the photos when the surf's good and guys are ripping.

Re: J-Bay 2018

Felipe and Al have very similar eyebrows in those pictures you posted Buddy. I wonder if Felipe's eyebrows say something about his surfing.

Re: J-Bay 2018

Frustrating when the head doesn't work the way you think it should! I hope Kelly Slater starts having the same problem in a very public way. That would be very entertaining for surf fans and historians.

Re: J-Bay 2018

Hmmm, I just did an image search for Marty McFly's dad and realised I must be thinking of someone else.

Re: J-Bay 2018

I've been trying to picture Felipe in his old age. What he looks like. And I think he's probably going to look like Marty McFly's dad in the first Back to the Future movie. Or someone like that.

I predict... Filipe will end up in old people's home one day! Old guy in a movie, rocking chair on a porch.

Re: J-Bay 2018

I wish these guys would do some big straight airs with classic grabs! Work them into their foundation and keep speeding down the line. But no they go for reverses, always these stupid reverses. Needless affectation! Posers. Pro surfing is in a sorry state. I blame Jordy Smith and Julian Wilson and t...

Re: J-Bay 2018

throw julian and jordy to the shark! that way we can appease the gods and stop all the fans complaining about how they've toned down their radical surfing for the judges and get on with the contest.

Re: J-Bay 2018

griffin colapinto's a cool cat. he's in the commentary booth now with ronnie blakey and peter mel and when ronnie asked him what his goals for this year are he said "to have a lot of fun and get in the top six". i bet he talks about 13' surf too.
