Watch: Michael February // Nü Rhythmo
Before he made the jump to the CT, there were hopes that Michael February could bring a bit of style to the main stage. That he'd cut through the mititary gymnastics with his supple flair, maybe shift the criteria and cause other surfers to think, not merely about what movements they do, but how they do them.
Didn't happen but. Partly it was a lack of opportunity, and partly it was an inability to do what Matt Biolos says is "surfing in 3D" - to be fast and powerful and acrobatic, and to be all those things all over the wave.
More than anything, the CT simply wasn't the platform for M'Feb to demonstrate his subtlety and grace, so it's good to see him in a project where he can spread his wings.
