Toledo was ripping but farout he was claiming before the wave had ended still had more sections he could have fitted his turns in.

the only time to claim is the total end of the wave as you're about to get dragged over dry reef or your fins are going get busted out hitting the shore.

Yeah mate the claiming is starting to really **** me. Yeah claim something crazy, but not just a good ride and then taunt the judges tower

Crap final crap result.
As least wilko is still wearing the yellow jersey.
the surf was the best consistently I have ever seen for a jbay classic.....I spent a winter there a long time ago and never seen waves that good.
on a side note did anyone see the shark boat get caught inside.....now that was a perfect 10

Not really a surfer but Dead Mercer has died in a car crash. Used to enjoy watching ironman back in the 90s on wide world of sport.

Cannot believe Medina is back in contention.

Go Julian, John and Jordy. In that order.

yep cant stand the prick. Im really off the world tour. Remember in the mid '00s when they marketed the dream tour, then more often than not we were seeing contests in perfect conditions, and stretch out the 10 day waiting period. Now its over in the first few days and we see them surf in some slop just to get to comp done. But not its all about the air game they dont care about wave quality.

Yeah I really loved the original Endless Summer and I'm not a surfer, have watched it many times.

Great stuff.
