Hey all, not sure if you've been watching, but there's a live professional surfing contest happening in Fiji today/tomorrow (it's tomorrow there -- they're 16 or 17 hours ahead of us here in NYC). Yesterday they only ran two heats -- the last two heats of Round 2 -- and then left the big stuff to the gnarly free surf big wave pros who wanted it. There were a handful of the top 34 surfers in the world out there as well. They're on today at the back-up spot, Restaurants, which is a pretty much a long perfect barreling left. Should be great to watch. There are a lot of pundits on Twitter that claim otherwise, and their tweets are worth reading, if only for entertainment's sake. I have found myself spitting my water all over my desk from laughter at what some of these guys and gals are writing: @Rottmouth, @werdson, @gravys, @dumbthchronicles -- and just find some of the people they communicate with to see the running drivel. Seriously funny. Here's the link to the event: Fiji Pro.
