    World Surf League couldn't find anyone better to partner with?

    J-Bay event was the first on FB. No issues streaming it. Waves cooperated and the boys ripped it up.

    Not many companies have a billion dollar slush fund for new content these days, so I'm guessing "no"

    It's not clear for sure, but I don't see the deal being off. They signed a two year contract. But they announced you can watch the streams on the WSL home page now and not have to be on FB.
