There's a little nugget in an otherwise fairly uninteresting piece with Jay Leno in an old episode of Top Gear where he says that the arrival of the automobile saved the horse, shifting it from hard worked transport vehicle to leisure accessory in half a generation. Maybe the wave pool will do the same thing. Maybe professional surfing will, in time, fully decouple from surfing and the idea of a two-week jamboree taking over some of the world's most iconic waves will be but an absurd distant memory. That the arbiter of quality ocean surfing will no longer be hardwired to the skills of thirty small Brazilians and a couple of Americans. That the surfboard itself, freed from the long shadow of the professional circuit, will bulge and bloom in unimagined directions. That the Dionysian hand jive will become a thing and nobody will be laughing anymore. That ocean surfing will become a mellow sanctuary for low intermediates, a place to whoop and hoot and high-five and party wave with impunity. Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps

Not a bad dream Godsave....I'd say low intermediates are already taking over and any single one of them within a day can get a ten second tube-ride at Kelly's tub if they stump the cash.

I'm just getting to this podcast with Nick in it.

He's really very entertaining and has a much more mellifluous speaking voice than Californians.

I listened to that and it became clear very quickly that Nick and I could become the best of friends in real life.

You know that’s not quite true SS. The pros fluffed that wave countless times, missed the barrel, overshot the barrel, rarely got deep enough to disappear. Most Leaner-Intermediates would be left in the mush of the tub, wondering what happened.

Except Seabass. He fcuking slotted it

But seriously, this wasn't a full scoring WSL event, right?

I wonder if Kelly would have turned up if the pool wasn't his. I doubt it.
Why the fcuk do you reckon I went there? First pool CT since Allentown.

Here's some reporting I did

Not on my watch cnut.

I'm gonna make sure I fcuk this whole thing up forever, for everyone except Filipe Toledo.


ps you used the word "nugget", I take this to be a subliminal message that this low intermediate paradise will be equipped with McCoy Tuflites.

well the truth is that's not a fair comparison, everyone has a mellifluous speaking voice compared with Californians.

man I am absolutely fcuked after five days of that place. No wave riding, swimming in a huge pond full of shit, and dehydrating half to death amid a sea of white VIPs. Like I thought it was summer here, and all the VIPs's skins looked as if they hadn't seen sun in years.

Facebookers I guess.

Did you get to surf the wave itself?
