I remember Jody Smith was 6/1 to win J Bay. Think he won it that year. Pretty crazy betting on surfing, that ocean can sort of be slightly unpredictable

Yeah, that's actually a pro for betting because it makes rigging that much harder.

Subjective scoring means anything is possible

True although the other objective factor....i. e....no waves...means plans can be thwarted.

Isn't Lennox meant to be going off its chops?

Just watched a vid of Jaws during a big swell a couple of days ago. Totally out of control crowd-wise. Seems any bloke who can afford a gun and an inflation vest is out there. Three blokes on a wave, boards getting bailed, loose boards in the impact zone. Frightening at that size.

I've watched quite a few paddle sessions down here at monster size. Agree with the crowd/kook factor, but you can't hang onto that much foam at that size. The talk in the line-up might have been interesting

Log on to the pass cam at swell net for a laugh. A few knocks to the head today, I'd imagine.

Was getting ready to go the pass and a mate called to go to the alley instead
Sounds like a good call

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.
