MUST SEE MOMENT
- 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.
