Nick, I read somewhere the WSL are going to hold a contest next May, is it going to be part of the WCT? & if so, how fcuk are they going to score it? Seriously, are the WSL trying to make surfing, a simple sport, just way more complicated than it actually is? For me, it's getting more like pro wrestling, just scripted drama about nothing.

The best wave I saw on my Insta was MF on a 5'3 fish, perhaps that's the future: top 32 have 6 waves, 3 forehand, 3 backhand, top 3 count for a score out 60, they must catch 2 waves on a fish, single fin and to please the masses a thruster.

Still a shit fight but a more interesting shit fight.

ha ha well as I understand it right now, it's just a specialty event, not a CT

There's probably a lot of shit being talked right now among the CT rules crew about how to judge a wave pool event, the problem I guess is that can you have some events run one way and then this random one in a pool done totally differently, and they both count toward CT points?

I've been doing other stuff so haven't paid it much attention yet re inside info etc, but I am pretty sure that crew would be wigging right now.

GSTQ would have started off with that surprised look on his face just like Mick when Andy slapped him, but morphing into a look of confusion and disbelief as the man hug reached its apogee.

Isn't everyone in Wales shameful? And ginger? And of dubious lineage?

Seems to be more than a few who attended the WSL thingy are absolutely frothing over the mechanical wave.

The same frothers also probably know the biting the hand thay feeds you, particularly when/if the tour numbers shrink dramatically, isnt the smartest move.

And by apogee you mean boner right?

Me too. He's spilt a few beans too.
At 15 waves per hour the economics (for a commercial venture) won't stack up.

I just learned that Karl Wallinger is Welsh! It's kind of a German-sounding name though.
