Like, look at it. And then think about that context. This was not some retarded film clip session where the star fcuks up seventeen waves before nailing a reverse. This was crunch time at the end of a heat in shitty 6'+ Bells. And Johnny did this at will. Only KS, AI and my little brother have done this sort of thing in my memory.

As an old fogie I was really impressed with how a lot of the young guys generally were surfing. Obviously John John but so many were carving solid rail turns as well as all the pyrotechnics. Rather than sliding everywhere. You're right about that heat. It was like Mick was schooling him about Bells.....till the end. There must be a few older competitors who are wondering about the future.

Normally, Maurice Cole is king of the stairs. Nick has usurped his mate's spot. It's a bloody tough old game, this video bombing.

True...although Maurice knows how to wear a hat. Nick should get some advice re: fashion.

He seemed to be rocking it with some fine disdain for the surrounding precedings though.

Back at the Tuckerbox, no hot girls this time. Got some stink eye off a Dad though. Oh dear did I accidentally look at his kind of hot wife.
