If you look at the replay of the first big top turn on kolohe's wave just now there's something big in the wave.
About the 26 minute mark.
I just tuned in and don't have my bearings, it could be a ski, or strider.

Gabby's the real deal. Only wish JJF was in it too.

I actually thought some of his earlier heats were pretty weak, he wasn't matching the speed of the wave.
But he stepped up. That finishing move on the lower 9 was crazy.

Potts was his groupie in the booth, arguing with judges who didn't give him tens.

What a final. Old Strides was nearly wetting himself. I enjoy the way everyone is surfing now way more than say five years ago.

AJ's board would go sooooo good out there.
My board? It's your fcukin' board! I tried to buy it from you with avocados and beer, but you had none of it.

Is that why AJ ‘put a deposit’ on your MC? Because you wouldn’t sell? Or am I reading this wrong?

I don't understand this whole AJ/NC/MC board thing.

I thought NC has sold him the board.


Turns out he had only loaned it to him?

Is that odd?

Loaned it to AJ to try out. Not odd.
Steve, don’t you loan boards to your mates so they can assess whether they like the shape?

You think he drove up there, hopefully clutching his bag of avocados, It’s all I’ve got Mister Carroll, and then Nick snared him into some awful 6000% interest payday loan and snatched back the board? Yeah, me too

Yeah I do.

It might be a bit different if it was someone off the internet.

Like if you drove down from Brisbane and took a board back with you I might consider that a bit odd.

Sounds like this one has had a happy ending though.

AJ has a very trustworthy countenance.
