    Never seen Kelly fuck up so bad as he did this afternoon in the Semis!! Part of me thinks he threw it ... thoughts?? Regardless, stoked for Kauli and congrats to Miguel and Courtney!! Thought Kauli got way underscored for his switchfoot barrel. That was soooo sick!!

    P.S. Hedgy is still a BA!!

    I believe his competitive spirit would not allow him to do this.

    Tough for Kelly in those smaller waves on his backhand. It took two or three massive pumps to gain speed to make those waves on the inner reef before they opened up a bit. Just not possible unless your a goofy footer. Really no to little chance IMO.

    When it was big, the 50 year old shined.

    Very good point Sluff! I noticed the regular foot women having trouble getting into the barrell in the heat before his. I figured with all of Kelly's experience with that wave, he'd have no problem. It wasn't until seeing your post and re-watching some of the final, that I realized with that "smaller" size the goofyfoots have a distinct advantage.

    Finals on now. Waves look ok.
    Definitely not the tension or drama im sure they wanted. The surfers other than Italo look barely interested.

    Gilmore wins for the women.

    I'm listening, and cutting over when I hear someone on a wave, and Gilmore simply looked better than Carissa in the final. She made the best out of not great conditions.

    It's a shame to see the bump this afternoon.

    Toledo won the first heat against Italo. Italo is one of my favorites, but Felipe deserves a title.

    Stoked to see Steph run all the way through. Happy for Felipe. Like you LDD, I think he's deserving; guy killed it the back half of the season and you knew he wasn't going to lose at Lower's. Despite the bump, do think they picked the best day in the waiting period. Cool to hear Mick and Kelly commentating. I don't want to see him go, but I bet if Kelly had the decision to make over - he'd have retired after Pipe.

    2023 Schedule announced. Surf Ranch back on schedule after the cut. Teahupo'o announced as 2024 Olympic Venue. Wonder if Kelly will stick around to try and qualify .... ??
