Anyone watching today?
Lil' Jacky Robinson is killing it. Near perfect score in round two (19.60) and then won his 4 man heat in round 3!
Swell is definitely building! Tomorrow is going to be bloody huge.
Anyone else watching? Funny how even though the waves are 2-3 foot, the guys are throwing down some serious manturns.
Contrast to the Sao Paulo comp that was pretty much Cirque du Soleil above the lip.
Yeah some good surfing in fun rippable waves. But, I'd much prefer if it was eight-to-ten and heaving.
Ha! Don't get him started Udo.
He's had enough free advertising.
Looks so fun... I'm not sure of the mechanics of the north shore as I'm yet to venture their, however, going off google maps, it looks to face WWN. The swell is said to be around 6ft from the NW whats up there?
Also, given the forecast ahead, looks like the remainder of the comp will run in shit. Which sucks.
Are the surfers Elite Athletes (TM)?
I only watch Elite Athletes (TM)
They are actually, Ace, Melling and Tiago, all CT surfers.
But how many one legged squats can they do?
don't start that shit again
pharrrkkk anyone watching today?!
How good was Jacky Robinson getting through! How good is Ricardo trying to requalify!!!
Pumping Sunset. Happy Friday.
I want all four guys in this heat to get through :(
Wilko, Stu Kennedy, Parko and Dusty
Gabs turn just then, so epic!
Gabs is on fire.
'tis unfortunately so.
Gabs must've expended so much energy in that heat.
So many big turns, didn't surf a bad wave.
Hope he and JonJon are in the final together.
Garybriel looking deadly for a world title it's gotta be said. Almost as deadly as my singlet is going to look at Stereosonic tomorrow
Did you lot see his facey/ floater/fall/recovery yesterday?
Really looking forward to seeing the boys manhandling pipe. I love manhandling pipe.
But I particularly love watching other muscular men manhandle pipe.
@GG, I'd have bet money you were a Backdoor man, buddy. And/or Gums.
I like it both ways @talkingturkey.
Gabs probably should've chilled out a bit after he had his qtr in the bag.
I'm not talking about blow either Gary, so relax.
Yeah Gabs wasn't settled for that Semi.
Swellnet's own Mickyfanny for the win!
So great that one of the forum regulars can take out the world cup of surfing at macking sunset
A re they likely to make it through to finals and finish Pipe tomorrow. Or am I saving a bit of time off for Fri morn also. Title could be decided tomorrow though.
I think they have to finish tomorrow. Remember reading that their permit only allows them 4 days of competition and they've used 3 so far.
