Re: Just general surfing stuff

i was out at Snapper close to Jack Freestone throwing some big airs on an overhead day. The visual was something I’d become used to from clips, but I was surprised by the loudness of the noise as he blasted off the lip. The sound was thrilling.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Someone posted this Caio Ibelli instagram link on Swellnet. Caio is saying it’s his first wave at North Narra for 10 years. Good memories. Coming 3rd in his debut on the international stage in a junior contest. His first wave there in 10 years is a pretty decent wave! https://www.instagram.com/p/CNj...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

I’m a Fanno fan, but I have zero desire to see him surf another heat. What’s the point?
I also reckon this cameo wasn’t Fanno’s idea.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Gee whiz, the rumour is true. Mick Fanning will be competing as a wildcard in the WSL’s Rip Curl Narrabeen Classic. Not very forward looking. It will capture a few eyeballs though. Louis Hynd and Jacob Willcox (Rip Curl’s other male aussie surfers who aren’t already competing) will be a bit disappoi...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

Most viewers seem to have found the wave pool comps boring.
What’s the best thing about pro surfing compared to other sports. The vagaries of the ocean.

Re: Just general surfing stuff

The town seems stoked. Looks to be about 120 spectators. Of course, a lot of those are possibly friends and relations of the competitors, WSL staff and passersby on the way to somewhere else

Re: General snow stuff

Nico Porteous, the 19 years old New Zealand freestyle skier, won the men’s half pipe world champs about 10 days ago. Here is his winning running run. The feature is his back to back double somersaulting 1620s. One right spinning and the other left spinning. I heard him interviewed. Doing it both dir...

Re: Just general surfing stuff

There's still a QS tour? How does that work in the age of quarantine? The revised WQS (the regionalized development tier) was designed so that WQS competitors would focus of their own regional events to make it more affordable for them. There are very few non-Australians competing in the QS here th...
