Where's Steve, we need him to verify this claim:

"... the Almadies peninsula in Senegal, a current buzz destination with one of the largest swell windows in the world".

Steve's probably vegging out and basking in the family embrace after several long hard days of surf reporting for Beachgrit on the Narrabeen contest. And a marvellous job he's done too. You beauty Steve.

Gabriel Medina, what a treasure. He's the Bruce Lee of pro surfing.

I’m warming to him but calling him a treasure is abridge too far Al.

I thought they were fun this time around. The guys seem to have been putting a bit of thought into them. A bit of claim choreography going on behind the scenes there.

Yes, he sent very clear and commanding messages. He's a story teller and a poet, a dramatist and an artist, a magician and a master of his craft, and no ordinary athlete. A treasure, I tell you Beanpole!

The Brazilians have taken competitive surfing in a new direction. Less reliant on the waves and more reliant on their own athleticism.

Great quotes from Steve:

These aren’t people being called on to solve differential calculus or perform brain surgery on kiddies but their livelihood does require being able to place themselves in a position to catch a wave.

Not a bad spray. Still bullshit about Italo from the judges. Maybe knock a few points off for the completion. Coffin was embarrassing in the final.

Great. Now I'm imagining BA's majestic snow-capped erection, upon which scores of brave men have perished
