Re: Just general surfing stuff

I might be a bit alone, but I like Pottz as well. Consistent, kind of low key, but genuinely appreciative. Those noises he makes, the grunts and oohs behind Joe’s commentary when someone does a big manoeuvre is a good soundtrack for me. And then during the wave replay, the way he glowingly highlight...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

You’ve probably all seen the JBay photos on Swellnet, but the second photo of Connor Coffin is an absolute classic JBay shot.

Swellnet also report that waves for the event are unlikely to be top JBay.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

That is good news for you, Trev. Congrats! Kelly Slater. The last few years have perhaps tarnished the KS brand for some. But this year! Winning unlikely heats! On Tuesday, he is seen surfing on the Tweed Coast in Australia. On Thursday, he is in Brazil in crappy small waves winning his heat by out-...

This on the wall of a coffee shop in Ala Moana Shopping Centre. They gave me a filthy enough look while I was taking the pics. :oops: Could never have got close enough to nick it. :roll: http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll46/TrevG27/DSCF4696Large.jpg http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll46/TrevG2...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

On the other hand......Nick, unlike everyone else on here, rarely paddles out without knowing someone. Guess it's a novelty. It’s not. I’ve had many surfs like today, like bombing 6-10’ plus days here in Sydney by myself. This was the first time I experienced the feeling of it being a weird, feral ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I was just applying similar caveats that are not unfairly applied to Filipe Toledo and Jordy Smith when greatest surfer assessments are made.

I was watching live, I reckon Steph’s kick stall gave me a stab of joy unmatched in my last 5 years of surf watching.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I did think that Nick’s statement “Steph Gilmore is head and shoulders the best Australian surfer today, maybe the best in the world” needed some pretty significant caveats. My observations from the peanut gallery. Steph has not developed any confidence in waves of consequence. She has no air game. ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Passing thought. The current WSL seems full of young, trained, coached, sober, heat-winning (at least QS), hyper-performers. Kelly Slater. Ok, he’s not a contender. The fact that, at 47, in 2 and bit events, in small waves, he has not been the loser in 4 heats seems almost as remarkable as many of h...
