It needs a nice mural. Wave parks in general seem strangely bereft of murals.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I saw enough to think he could ride midlengths perfectly and beautifully and better than just about everybody else. But, as he explained, particularly when surfing in front of the camera, if he did that he would feel like 'a poseur' and 'an asshole'.

Gab's 9.43.
Hard to know how many points that aerial is worth in the context.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Basically, they see a bit of a boom coming with the Olympics, wavepools and more surfing interest in Asia. Plus, DHD have bought Modom, a softboard and surf accessory business.
