Kayo is the good new steaming sports service. Owned by Foxtel, but actually pretty good. Kicks arse over wsl's video, for example.

Meh. $25/month for football, surfing, other sports on demand is a fee I'm willing to pay. I'd pay more if they got rid of Joe Turpel and Strider Raspberry Wasilewski.

Tell me, does the WSL site have light sabre dueling and chess boxing. Kayo does. That's right, while you're watching 6-8' dream tour, I can switch to two guys from midwest America trying to hit each other with plastic swords.

She’s a bitch of a wave. Some are super smooth and open, others are steppy and clamping. Connor got bitch slapped on that last one.

Today I caught a wave with new fins and a new board and I experienced something I'd heard of but never experienced. The wave was fast and powerful and I took a high line on a section and the fins started to hum really loudly. It made me fall off as I wondered wtf happened. Then I remembered reading about it once before on swaylocks.

Barton frothing in the booth is what the commentary needs. Not Joe's banal monotone drone, Barton giggling and bouncing around on the couch.

100% Barton & Ronnie are the only two I can tolerate

Luke Egan was good too.

Luke owns Commne at Keramas doesn't he?
I don't mind the commentary that much and it's always good to see Strides freezing his butt off out in the line up. Brazilians killed it yesterday while I was watching.

Bah. Italo gets an 8.17 yesterday for some of the most critical surfing we'll see all year. Lakey gets a 9.8 for two turns.

Well, they made their excuses for yesterday. The good raps he's been getting are worth more than the score though. Speaking of raps.....some people were a bit nasty to Nick over on Coastalwatch over his rap about Stephs 10 Pointer at Keramas..
