  • It's hard because of the timing, but I caught some of it during the early morning hours. Honestly, save for the sharks, that wave is my absolute favorite. Definitely on my bucket list - not sure I'll ever get to cross it off, but hey, I can dream!


    Check the replays of some of Jordy's waves, holy effin crap, that dude can surf! And of course Congrats to Filipe Toledo for the win.....great surfing round after round.

  • Timing was rough but saw enough to know which heats to replay at work. I would prefer a left, but man that wave was just perfection this week. Proof that its not always massive conditions to make even the pros happy.

  • If you have a Samsung TV you can go into their apps menu and there's one for wsl. If it's not live you can watch recaps or full day events from that day / previous days.

  • I'm not sure what I signed up for, probably the contest notifications, but I've been getting emails every day from wsl with a link to the full recap. So I've been hiding myself from all the surf websites and not looking at anyone's scores then playing it back like it was live...


    The recap seems to go away after a few hours, I think when they put the heat analyzer up... but I found if you go to the first heat of each round in the heat analyzer in a web browser - and try not to look at the scores -  then click on the youtube link when the vid starts, you get the recap for that round in youtube. It seems the Analyzer just marks ins and outs in the full stream. I hate the analyzer because you see the scores, so this works pretty well if you can try not to look.


    Anyhow, Toledo's double air was pretty fantastic. Jordy, Fredrico, Toledo and JJF were all killing it.


    Those sharks make me wonder how many contests they ran where no one knew there were sharks in the lineup. Was easy to spot yesterday with the drone and the detection equipment (and the crystal clear water), but you have to imagine they're pretty constantly there... remember years back (2003) when one freaked out Taj and no one believed him? They didn't even stop heats back then... Here's a quote from Taj in 2007 when Lowe saw one:


    Quote
    “Lowe spotted a shark, claiming it was a great white and we know they are out there so I was sort of freaked out, Burrow said. “I think they introduced a new rule today, if you see a shark, you wave your hands in the air, point at the water and head in.
    Lowe ended up winning his heat...


    It's actually pretty amazing no pros got chomped in all these years... The closest was Mick, but if those sharks wanted dinner, they would have had dinner. I still remember how freaked out I was watching that live that morning...

  • Felipe Toledo executed some of the most insane frontside/backside 360 airs I've ever seen in a contest or anywhere. Kid's got a gear that doesn't exist for anyone else. His surfing in that event was at a level I haven't seen in a long time from anybody.
