    Good to see the swell building. The early heats in the round of 16 were diseased.

    Definitely firing right now. This Medina/JJF heat is shaping up to be epic.

    edit: 10 minutes left in the heat but I think Medina has this one locked up.

    Well that sucked. Slater never got into that heat.

    Congrats to the 47 year old triple crown winner.

    Eh, I don't know. A Brazilian out-Brazillioned another Brazilian. Surf trip behaviour into the WSL? It's not like it's new to these guys.

    Seemed like Medina was trying to take it a bit easy against Griffin (i.e. do just enough to make it through) to conserve some energy since he knew he'd have a shorter rest period than Italo … ??? I hope Italo absolutely, fucking DESTROYS Medina!!!

    Never watched a WSL event before today. Pretty cool and engaging if you commit to watching the full heats, less so if you can't focus in on the drama/buildup.

    I latched on to team Italo. Cool to see it go down to the Final Heat, and psyched that JJF got the Olympic spot.

    Yeah, it can be tough to watch when its lully. There's a lot of down time. I like when it's on during my work hours. I have one monitor with the event on and can work on the other.

    Anyone else catch the first Big Wave At Large episode? Absolutely bananas.

    I had the replay of the Nazare tow-in comp up on my second monitor all morning. I hate to even say this, but it's just not that exciting to watch. The waves are huge and I'm sure for the guys in the water it's an absolute blast, but it's not nearly as fun to watch as the Jaws big wave comp.

    Agreed. I watched one heat and couldn't get into it, haven't even caught highlights. I enjoyed Shipsterns, Jaws was even better, but not Nazare.

    There were a few gems. Kai Lenny caught a wave in Heat 6 that was absolutely sick. I'm pretty sure it's the one that won him Best Wave but I haven't been able to find the clip.

    I only could stand watching surfing when I was bottle feeding my kid. Otherwise, watching guys sitting and paddling in a line up can become pretty dull. I found watching events live to be a bit better.

    I actually get really into the broadcasts and surprise myself how many heats I can watch. As much as I like watching ski & mountain bike edits, I don't really enjoy watching surf edits/videos as much and prefer watching the whole process the comp broadcast brings (wave selection, wave start to completion).
