There’s some very skilled surfing going on, but with the mechanical wave, the rides just seem like busywork. Watching it is deadening.

Fairdinkum. The monorail of surfing.

Corporate survival is an infectious disease. Even the most healthy and seemingly strong catch the bug.
Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.

Lemoore is to surfing what Guantanamo Bay is to luxury resorts.

I just watched one wave of Kolohe's waves.
God it was safe.

And I can't understand why if they know EXACTLY what the wave is going to be they are still running boards that require the double wiggle bottom turn to get the water through the find?
The girl's boards seem to suit the pool better, and Gabby always seems to surf better with the wider tail.

I'm impressed by the wave, it's a great feat of engineering.
They've tweaked it a bit, and the water is a better colour.

I only saw 3 waves, they seemed better, like the water level was lower.
Could've been better camera angles, the ski angle is not flattering at all.
The lip line is more oblique, giving a steeper transition in the turn sections, but the trade-off is a greater need to maintain speed down the line, ie safety surfing for the up and down surfers. For the good Jbay surfers that's a plus, for others it highlights the gulf in performance and technique.

Barrel sections seem worse/less perfect.

Whoever designed the wsl website needs a karate chop to the throat. You have to turn on the scores, but it has the video duration so it looks like noone got over a 3.20

The lyrics of the annoying song they have on repeat this year.
I've caught a few

"It's getting hard, hard to explain, It's insane.
It's time to let go, I won't let go."

Sums up this event really.

Ever since the WSL took over, that website has been a shambles.
They've changed it a number of times and it is always a fucking nightmare to navigate.

How about the lyrics to Ship of Fools
Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.

It's just a bloody mess toots. Doesn't feel like surfing.
