Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal: Day 3

The biggest air in contest history? The second biggest..? Who knows, but Julian Wilson's Round 3 oop against CJ Hobgood was a fine effort, and if it didn't eclipse John John's Balinese version it went awfully close.

The new Surfing Australia boardrider comp got off to a freight-training start last weekend. Waitpinga, on South Australia's south coast, turned on blue moon barrels for competitors and non-competitors alike.

Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal: Day 2

Bet you weren't expecting that, eh? Know I wasn't. Slater goes down in Round 2 to a local wildcard registering his first 25th of the season. With that result he almost certainly hands the world title to Mick Fanning (if Mick gets third or better he wins at Portugal, if not the decider happens at Pipe).
