MUST SEE MOMENT

Tahiti

  • JJF vs Kelly was heat of the decade.
  • Should have had them surf again
  • Gabriel Medina – I don’t like him, he’s the bad guy; and the sport needs a bad guy; he should embrace it. ASP should embrace it.
  • Every Sport has their Tony Stewart; their Richard Sherman; Their Dennis Rodman; their Eli Manning; their Luis Suarez; every sport has the guy we love to hate; Yankees; Duke basketball; it is good for sport. Gabe Medina is that guy for me. And I suspect, for lots of surfers.

Jay Adams Memorial Paddle out at Venice Pier

  • Hundreds bid farwell to surfer/skater hell raiser who died a sober Christian man who was as
    Pastor and friend Sumo Sato said, “Jay made his path straight. He was right with God.”


Red Bull Cape Fear

  • Sixteen of the world’s best surfers take part in the inaugural Red Bull Cape Fear in Sydney’s Botany Bay and take on the ‘most dangerous wave in the world’. The six to eight foot waves over a shallow reef make the event one of the more difficult in the world, with the competition organizers claiming it to be the most dangerous.
  • Tons of potential but a bit underwhelming because the surf wasn’t overly consequential;
  • On the heels of the Tahiti Teahuppo event, well, that didn’t help matters;
  • The pre-event history by Red Bull was of course all time; production quality got you fired up;
  • Then they cut to rather underwhelming broadcast; I think this should have been boiled down in post production.
  • Plus, bad timing with Teahupoo then Hurricane Marie here is California, plus an epic run of surf on the Goldy.
  • There were eight head-to-head competitions, with the contest director, Mark Mathews, beating his childhood hero, Shane Dorian, despite having a back injury. Mathews, from Sydney, was one of five locals to claim victories, with Richie Vas, Kirk Flintoff, Koby Abberton and Jesse Polock also winning.

Hurricane Marie

  • Newport Beach was as good as it has ever been -ever!; this according to long time legenad shaper Rich Harbour of Orange County
  • All sorts of dormant spots lit up; the video does the talking here
  • MalibuU

  • Laird Alpha dog dominates
  • Deaths- The Los Angeles County coroner’s office identified the male surfer who died Tuesday near Malibu Pier as Silverio Laconsay, 54, of Los Angeles. His cause of death was not immediately determined.
  • Again, plenty of video out there of Wedge, Newport, Malibu, Laird
  • Laird not only shot the pier, saved a dudes life, and sprayed the lineup like a Lion patrolling his domain in the Serengeti — he also helped a deliver a litter of puppies and then taught them how to do sign language – then he paddled back out; it’s all on The Inertia.
  • MSA contest this weekend

  • Malibu Surfing Association ;
  • long standing event a summer tradition and looks like plenty of swell on tap
  • Surf Aid Cup is a fundraiser that runs in conjunction with, and under the umbrella of, the MSA event

  • Hurley Pro

  • Lower Trestles, San Clemente, California
  • 9 – 20 September 2014
  • Kolohe is on fire;
  • He seems to have found his competitive feet,
  • All smart money would pick him for your Fantasy team,
  • but…Is Kolohe too good to be true here?
  • Does he have that “local” curse, the one that tapped Michel Bourez.
  • Have their been others locals who have failed at their local break?

  • Big Wave World Tour Southern Hemisphere season closes

  • Can you name any of the winners of the BWWTour?
  • The Northern Hemisphere season begins on October 15, 2014 and is comprised of three events: Todos Santos Pro, Mexico; Punta Galea Challenge, Basque Country, Spain; and Pe’Ahi Pro, Maui, Hawaii.
  • Big wave tour surfers vs. World Championship Tour surfers: I think the line is blurring between the two.
  • I feel that if they give a green light at Jaws Peahi; that the WCT surfers guys like Slater, Owen Wright; Mick Fanning, Parko, Kai Otten these guys charge; should be invited.
  • They either are the best surfers in the world or they are not.
  • What I would like to see: A mix of BWWT top ten surfers and WCT Top Ten.
  • It’s a win/win for all involved; puts more eyeballs on the BWWT, it validates the WCT pros in the big stuff; and it validates the BWWT pros who have the opportunity to beat the best in the world.
  • If Shawn Dollar wants to see his stock go way up; watch what happens when he beats Kelly Slater, or Mick Fanning or Gabe Medina at Jaws in front of the entire surfing world.
  • BWWT Surfers who have competed on the WCT or WQS:

  • Shane Dorian
  • Kelly Slater
  • Peter Mel
  • Carlos Burle
  • Greg Long
  • Tyler Fox
  • Ken Collins
  • Of note: two events in the South Hemi did not run. The ASP is rolling that prize money over to the the Northern Hemi ; if those events don’t run they disperse the monies among the Top Ten BWWT finishers.
  • SURF PARKS proposed

  • Chicago Surf, a proposed stationary surf park, said to open next summer at Montrose Beach.
  • The Chicago Park District has entered into a concession agreement with K.C. Hoos, founder of Chicago Surf LLC, park spokeswoman Jessica Maxey-Faulkner.
  • Under Hoos’ plan, the Chicago Surf park would have what looks like a rectangular pool on land featuring a 16-foot wide and 46-foot long wave-generating machine surrounded by a 7,500-square-foot patio with a full kitchen to serve food and beverages.
  • Another surf park proposed in Hawaii at a new hotel development on the south west side of the island.
