Jimmy...keeping it real.
I find the French stuff utterly boring compared to even WA.

Hey there, Owen Wright.
Sour grapes is never a good look
Yeah. Neither is taking a bucketful of coke before the Pipe Masters and having a stroke but blaming it on a duck dive. The day that it happened Owen didn’t even paddle out.
was sour grapes but really jimmy? Bucket full of coke? Doesn't seem to ring true with how he lives. Not that i know.

Yeah it happened BD. I don’t judge anyone for that stuff but Owen had a serious problem.

Wrong again. On all counts. This is the stadium blueprint for the wave pool revolution, riotous entertainment delivered to within 10 feet of your sunbaked tootsies with no clear winner til the peep! of the final whistle. John John v Medina, for example, was all pro surfing should be yet so rarely is

And Christ, yes I might be ill advisedly rehydrating with a really quite acceptable muscadet, but professional surfing doesn't deserve John John Florence

You've got pretty strong opinions about that incident jimmy. Don't know or care either way, but it's a pretty good effort to cover that up, and very different to the image presented by him. I'm guessing he's probably as anti drug as you could be now though

Dagnabbit I tuned out yesterday thinking they'd run the finals today! The WSL is bullshit. Their website doesn't even work. Their cartographer is Albanian. Just bullshit. I want my money back. That money I spent on those boardshorts and that wax.

And I was their biggest fan! It's bullshit, I can see clearly now. There's no turning back. I'm becoming a soul surf spectator.

Dirk Ziff or whatever his name is can take it up the ass for 24 hours, non-stop, no time out. And Gabriel Medina can give it to him. And a bucketful of coke. That was probably his plan anyway. Come to think of it it doesn't sound too bad. Better than perpetual war at least. And 2' Pipe with a stiff sideshore. That'd teach him what pro surfing is really all about. Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah!

Yeah, in a random French beachie.

I dunno how fascinating it'd be in a predictable wave generator. But we'll soon know!

John John should paint his face black next time he goes for a wiggle in Kelly's ditch. Invite Dane Kealoha and Titus to regulate the line-up. Paper mache statue of the Duke. That would make for fascinating viewing I think. You could probably sell that to midweek midday viewers and make your money back.
