I caught some of that. Really was a washing machine out there. Can't even imagine riding one of those tiny sups. Let alone stand on the thing.
7'6"x24'' and about 175 ltrs...no thanx!
One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"

The final day is quite good--and you can watch them on rewind. The waves in the morning were fantastic with barrel rides and all!!

James Casey, Sunova team rider got 1st in his heat.

James is a nice guy, he spent a few days here in Maui last week, mostly foiling but ripping on his SUP too. He can get a lot out of a dinky wave, reminds me of Dave Kalama in that regard.

What a great kid. I look forward to seeing him make a name for himself. Little Zane.

I had the chance to interview Tristan Boxford, the head of the World Tour, a few days after the event about the contest and the future of the sport.  Contest highlights paying in the background:

Great interview. Having come late to the sport, I always feel like people are talking about the "good old days" (like 2 years ago) and a decline. Its nice to hear a little perspective.
