Re: The Outsider

There's gonna be four CTs in Australia, a couple of 'em in slightly unexpected places, you'll all read about it tomorrow. Lots of people will watch 'em online, if the surf's good they'll be stoked but will fight over the judging or some shit. If the surf's not very good they'll blame the WSL, whatev...

Re: The Outsider

Fcuk, if I had a hand in the WSL I'd be spending a lot of that Santa Monica salary money on doing good shit for surf communities everywhere I could. Or just visiting with the top surfers from time to time, with no agenda beyond meeting the local kids and helping judge a club contest or whatever, tha...

Re: The Outsider

Like these CTs do not have to be destructive things for surf communities at all.

But yeah I can't see the WSL doing that soon, right now they can't see beyond next Monday.

Re: The Outsider

channels I'm not steve on this one but if someone wanted to have a CT at a place like Lennox, a great surfing community but one with no history of admitting that level of competition in the door and indeed an explicit history of rejecting it, the way to go would be to spend years building bridges. F...

Re: The Outsider

Plus it had a bit of surf wear industry backing. That Speil about living the dream and the future of the sport wouldn't really wash with your average local would it. It's basically the same argument as building lots of apartments and townhouses so everyone can enjoy the beauty of your suburb. The f...

Re: The Outsider

well Pig Bells has a 60 year history of being the Spot for major surfing events, it's one of the Gathering Places. It's not really the best place for an epic event as per today's standards but that was never quite the point at Bells. From the start it was a place where everyone went in order to surf...

I did think re star power, well who are the stars? All the stars are in other countries now. I thought yeah steve is totally right about this, if JJF and Italo, and Medina and Filipe and all that gang, and Carissa and Lakey came along with Tyler and Steph, and hung out with the kids and surfed with ...

Re: The Outsider

Yeah I think they just had no time, knew they were on a hiding to nothing but like Stark told us, "We thought fcuk let's at least try". they're working out of desperation, trying to save the world tour, it's fascinating to watch. Also super interesting is the different ways in which the various affe...

Re: The Outsider

Why are they doing it then? Are they a not-for-profit organisation, doing it for the benefit of.....?.? as far as I can tell, Dirk Ziff sees himself as a kind of philanthropist in the surfing milieu - a kind of benefactor I don't know this mind you, since I'm not really on the inside of any of it, ...

Re: The Outsider

To me it's just not a thing the whole idea of competition is that it happens in the presence of the Foe. Go away and shoot film of your best rides is a hoax. You could ride 100 waves and finally get one good one. That's not the deal. The deal is outfoxing the opponent. That's where the fire is. Tha...
