    The sea was angry that day, my friends--like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli.

  • i kinda really wanted slater to get the championship, but that was some amazing rides by fanning in the clutch.


    I was absolutely hoping for another Kelly championship, but if he wasnt going to get it, then this was about as exciting alternative as anyone could ask for....

  • How I see it:


    1.  CJ handed Mick the first heat with a most boneheaded priority mistake with a couple minutes left in the heat.  Thumbs down to CJ.
    2.  In the second heat Mick's small backdoor wave was significantly over scored and his second wave was slightly over scored.  It was a 9.2 or a 9.4 at best.  Thumbs down judges.


    The biggest thumbs down though still goes to CJ as he had him beat and blew it.

  • I just think the ASP wanted a way to milk Kelly for another year, hence denying him the 12th title this year.  Annoying, but you know in all sports they'll manipulate things to get the better story.


    Plus this way they got to have a John John/Kelly final...who would have watched Mick Fanning vs anyone else?  Bo-ring.

    we didn't get to watch every heat, but i couldn't believe how highly they scored mick in that heat and then underscored sebas in the heat right after. i thought sebas had a far more impressive barrel in his heat and he was scored almost a whole point lower.
     
    pretty epic that it was a john john / kelly final. total prophesy. super bummed we didn't get to watch it. EVEN more pissed we didn't surf yesterday. 2014 will be the year of family comes LAST not first. surf will come FIRST, dammit.

  • The event did not disappoint...but what was up with every other guy getting wedgies and seemingly almost losing their shorts?  Some new Billabong model that's gonna get shelved now or...?

  • Mick won one only contest this year. Kelly won three.

    I know it's all about the points, but as Ricky Bobby knows, if you're not first, you're last.

    Agreed, BUT.......

    It IS all about the points.  Every one of the 34 surfers on the tour, know this going in.  It is a level playing field in the respect.   The tour is about consistency over the entire season, not individual event finishes.

    Mick's 10 finishes are 3rd, 5th, 3rd, 2nd, 5th, 3rd, 9th, 1st, 5th and 3rd.  Kelly's 10 finishes, on the other hand, are 1st, 13th, 5th, 1st, 9th, 2nd, 13th, 5th, 25th, and 1st.  Now when you throw away their two lowest finishes, Kelly loses a 25th and a 13th while Mick loses a 9th and a 5th.   Which of those is the more consistent this year?  Even Ricky Bobby would admit that Mick was the clear winner over the 2014 season.   ;)
