Andy v Kelly the last decent cockfight. AI was all time. A flawed warrior. I miss that guy.

God I caught Mick F talking about men expressing their true feelings. I don't care Mick. Saying that he did a good job of quitting after Bells.

Should have seen NC when I snaked him at Newport, fark me the old bastard was absolutely livid. Would have been on for sure if he could have caught me, had my quad though and was way too fast for him.

Event cancelled due to Sharks

Should they have continued?

Should they have continued after Micks attack at J Bay? What's different about now?

J Bay under threat?

End of Marg River pro?

Too many fking Sharks in the water generally?

There's a sale on at Penny's.

There is probably an extra few thousand surfers in the Margaret River region (WSL plus school hols) and they have closed all the beaches using some weirdo local regulation that is enforceable.

Lucky I have already booked my ticket to Bali as there will probably be sudden exodus. I've stopped surfing in WA mainly because its a waste of time, but a secondary reason is there's way too many sharks and they seem to like me a little too much.

When the surf ranch event is held they should drop a couple of Bull sharks in the pool to make it feel authentic.

I wonder how many kms away would have made a differe. 50kms? 100?

Clearly no-one thinks The Shark shields make a difference.

This is the most embarrassing moment in pro surfing for many many years. Maybe ever.

Yes they are now officially Afraid Of The Ocean.

The forecast was pretty crap too, that probably influenced their decision

Pretty sure there hasn't.

Maybel legal issues too. They might get their arse sued of them if there was a fatality or serious injury to a surfer.

Does anyone have a clue what the legal situation would be?
