Watch: Seabass in Bali

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

After a spluttering start, the CT finally found gear at the Bali Pro with every heat from the Quarters onwards delivering freesurf-level performances. Yet of course the hot surfing also went on outside of the event, as evidenced here by Seabass who dipped in Rd 2 but kept his frenetic improv act happening down at Carparks.

And not to detract from Seabass' great surfing and righteous beach sweeping, but take a look at the 0:20 second mark and ask yourself, have you ever seen a worse duckdive?

Ultra critical barrel roll from beneath the surface, I bet he landed clean and rode out of it prone.

Looks like Dooma Hardman trying to claim an interference on a fellow competitor.

Did the same a few years back at 4' Bingin.
Was too used to a gentle push through the lip at Middleton and didn't allow for the extra Indo pull. Knocked the living shit out of me.
