Both the Dobby, and the O'neil hyperfreaks are insane! I brought the Hyperfreaks to Costa and ended up having to walk 20min to and from the beach each sesh.  Normally after a session or two  you start to feel the rashing but these things were unreal! Super comfy and I think the quality is there for hyperfreaks. I abused the brown trout out of these and they hold. The dobby's just got into Sundowna nd I was checking them out. REally nice and light weight.  The Bleeker's are the way to go.  Stretch and dobby, sweet.  Got a boardshort sale coming up this weekend June 14-15 at SUndown if anyone is interested in getting a little deal on these stretch boardies. The Phantom's are really nice a well.

Well, It's seems preordained that Parko is going take the title this year! The script is written and now let's see if Parko can play the role! The controversial single elimination format shook things up and whether you agree with it or not, it proved to be interesting and they did score some pretty filthy waves. Heats of Interest:


Slater vs Wright: Slater went looking for the tube too much and should have focused on the open face. Owen surfed exceptionally well and it seems like maybe it's time for Slater to move on... But wait, Slater at Chopes on his 5'3 is going to be the call! He did it at Pipe! Why not Chopes?


Smith vs Fanning: The cocky Saffa finally has started to shut up and let his surfing do the talking! This kid is going to do some damage this year. He will be a keeper on my picks for the season. Fanning, he wants the title again. He's hungry! But, is he hungry enough to take the title shot away from his best mate! Would you? I didn't think so.


The Three Darkhorses:


CJ Hobbledygood: He's hungry, on his way to divorce court and placed himself nicely within striking distance. With Tahiti coming up: It's game on. Shame his sponsor backed out of Fiji or this race would be considered tighter.


Freddy P: I wonder if I start drinking Budlight I might surf as well on my backhand as Freddy P? I think we might see a solid year from him. He's done well at Tahiti before. Maybe Quiksilver's plan on shrinking it's team might have anything to do with the fire under his arse?


Adam Robertson: Local underground WQS straggler who does good! Good on the kid. Even better is he gave the the surf industry the proverbial "up yours" by wearing a Hollister Hoodie during interviews! Maybe A&F will start sponsoring surfers and become more authentic than the big surf companies? Not bloody likely!




As for the Sundown Fantasy Club Winner for Bells it's Ibisurf who took a very close second at the Quik Pro and has now gone on to take the lead! He had an interesting roster that didn't even include Parko! Crazy! He had smart cheap choices who paid off with consistency. His top performers were: Fanning, a smart choice after his Quik Pro performance, Dingo Morrison, who is looking good but can't seem to get past the quarters, Jordy Smith, this kid is going to win an event this year!, and Kekoa Bacalso: The tank loved the thick walls of bells to match his power surfing. This kid is on a tear and may finally live up to his potential. Nice choices by Ibisurf. Please email me at [email protected] to receive your prize.


Tahiti is Next! Start getting your teams together!!! For more info go to

Sundown has just gotten in heaps of boards from Bing, Jacobs and Rusty. Come in and check em out...

Young Upstart started entered his first Bells comp and took down Dane Reynolds in Round 1! Because of the new format, every round is an elimination round and Dane is now out!!! Bummer, I had Dane on my team this event.
Jordy Smith did not disappoint and looks to be on fire! He's up against Damo Hobgood in the next round. Should be interesting. I'm calling for a Jordy vs Parko Final!!! Anyone keen on seeing this?
Speaking of Damo Hobgood, Check this video out... Reminds of the Sarge Video Days...

I'm bumming about Dane! The Judges ripped him off. They missed his last wave that was supposedly an 8+. Check out Stabmag.comHe shoulda beat Taj!

405
Parko Scored a perfect 10 in his semi and then his final! His surfing was nothing short of inspiring and I would have to say he is going to be the pick for the title this year. His surfing all through the event was nothing short of awe inspiring! In his Round Four Heat, he came back with a sick pick in the dying seconds of the comp! He then did it again in his Semi against Mick Fanning! Parko showed true determination and will be the one to watch. The disappointment for everyone had to be Slater. I think everyone had him on their teams. His 5'4 looked pretty sick but seemed to hold him back slightly. The big surprise of the event was Adriano De Souza! The kid shouldn't be a surprise since last year's steady climb but his domination of Taj in Semi 2 was nothing short of brilliant. And how about Dane and Jordy! Both surfed insane early on but Jordy couldn't find a decent wave in his heat and Dane was ripped off! He caught the sickest barrel at the end of his heat against Taj but the judges way underscored it. Check out Stabmag.com[/] for the full story on that. In the Final, it looked like Adriano just couldn't find the rhythm he needed and Parko just looked comfortable and relaxed. He got those back to back barrels that the announcers couldn't get enough of and kep showing them over and over in slow motion. For an event that started out slow, it finished with a bang. 
On the Sundown Fantasy Surfer group side of things, it was GMGsurfer who took out the win with a team consisting of: 
Kelly Slater   
Mick Fanning   
Damien Hobgood   
Dean Morrison   
David Weare   
Julian Wilson   
Jordy Smith   
Dane Reynolds   

Slater was everyone's pick and you can see most people's numbers are lower than they would have been had they gone with Parko. The rest of the top five on Sundown's Fantasy Surfer Group goes like:
2nd-ibisurf (So close! Only 2 points separated them)
3rd-Sundown (What can I say?)
4th- NYRippa (Last Years Overall champ and still a danger man)
5th- I don't have a name (couldn't think of a name but got it right with the teams) 

So if GMGSurfer would please stand up and send your contact info in order to win your prize, to [email protected] or im me here on NYNJsurf! 
Bells is up next and we will have to wait and see if Slater will be motivated to attend. Parko loves Bells and should continue his form. 
Thanks everyone and see you at the next event.
