Re: Rio Pro

Steve has taken to surfing in the nude. Maybe he's having some sort of breakdown.

Nick, does a Newport Plus Boardriders Club comp have any point beyond clearing the break for your own amusement?

would you apply the same logic to lance Armstrong Foamy?
That's cheating, like ball tampering. Very different.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I see no reason why surf journos should have reported on Andy's drug use. He wasn't trying to run the country or drive the school bus. He's a surfer. He surfs really well. That's the story. The public doesn't have a right to know his private life. The only perceived need to know is for the pleasures...

But somehow conflating that with racism, sexism etc etc is just bullshitt logic.
I didn't agree with that. Those isms do not seem innately adolescent.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Steve, we are all selfish narcissists. That's the facticity :wink: of the human condition. But, the primary purpose of writing, directing and acting is to produce something for others to use. Not with surfing. It is pure self-indulgence. It's just a way of feeling good. Nothing wrong with that. But ...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Most have probably already seen it, but the article by Fiona Capp in Fairfax about the movie 'Breath' is insightful and very well-written.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

If you don't like aerials, I don't think there's much to complain about with WSL heat surfing.
They do big turns. Unless they spray buckets, they don't get much of a score.

Re: Margaret River Pro 2018

The turning point was a few years ago when they neutered the one-manoeuvre Hail Mary. Although well intentioned, all it actually did was usher in blandly homogeneous rail surfing across the pack. Though, a full rotation above the lip aerial has been still getting people a mostly guaranteed 10. Like...

Re: Easter Classic 2018

Julio, re: ignoring the first part of the wave. I like Bells a lot and feel it is underrated and often under surfed in the event. People sit way down on the end bowl takeoff and sometimes even wide of that, then surf it "slow", trying to keep the pace down in order to time those straight up and down...
