J-Bay 2018

Post by Lucky Al » Mon Jul 02, 2018 6:27 pm

First round's on and the surf's alright! Forecast looks better. Could be a good event. Filipe, Wiggolly and Wilko coming up next - the whiteface, the auguste and the character!

watching on facebook is highly unsatisfactory and displeasing in many ways, i must say. may mark zuckerberg, that pig's snout and horse's arse, screw his own mother. but the surf's good so i'll just suck it up and have a few beers and scream to myself that this is a special time in pro surfing's rich history.

Yes, I am .

I'm going to have a problem trying to watch on phone because it is a hand me down and I can't log into FB on it.

That wave of Felipe's would have been a dream wave. Surfed beautifully too.

What did he get for it? I'm on silent now. I would have been happy with a 10.
Never mind 9.17.
They don't need to leave room for crazy airs in the criteria as they will be impossible with the offshore.

the second round can be so boring! even in such amazing waves. the next great hollywood surf movie must be about zombie pro surfers.
