Nikki has no feel for the wave at all really, she's repeating turns she knows how to do but not actually looking at the wave. Sage is being Sage, she is always rushing things and feeling the wave a bit better than Nikki but what she's feeling is skiting her out a bit. Steph is just plugging in easily, her best is by far yet to come today. It's her and Lakey with Johanne de Fay as a spoiler.

My judgement was based on the first 3 waves I watched only.
Steph kooked a big perfect bomb.


Looks way more consistent than what the men had.
The amount of perfect waves sneaking through without riders is crazy

Maybe the ladies didn't get the practice opps the boys did.

The women's CT goofies have all got horrific styles. I find it painful to watch.

Yeh, Bronte's looks alright.
Tati's style looked horrific to me too.

I couldn't really give a whole lot of a shit what it looks like if the turn angles are severe, committed, and accurate

These surfers are still developing their styles, what matters is that they are pushing it.

Surfers developing their style usually get taken out in the first heat.

Sure, from a spectator perspective I find my pleasure much diminished if the surfers aesthetic makes me cringe.

compare and contrast with Steph Gilmore, who gives me great pleasure to watch.
