Adriano's style is much more pleasing to the eye now than when he won the title. He laid some nice rail in that 4th round heat.

Porta was very unconvincing

Never doubted JJ would bet the score for that single air - Kelly got a 10 years ago with a huge air
Interferences are called by the head judge, not the panel.

It's a stupid rule and it'll never be invoked again.

is this event as great on the broadcast as it is here, live, in the actual air?

Is a sense of a great sporting event coming through? Or does it look like every other broadcast?

Hard to tell when you're fighting sleep at two AM.

But yeah, good surfing.

After Margies, it gets harder for the event to shine.

i'm a believer...
