    Questional Scoring in Favor of Brazilian Adriano DeSouza @Billbong Pro?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwxlM...layer_embedded

    local favoritism? Owen Wright had a ridiculous air reverse, and DeSouza had a really sick floater that outscored Wright making Adriano the winner. I thought it was pretty close, but i would think airs would get awarded higher points for difficulty

    they are actually incorporating claims into the judging criteria now.

    Claims are like celebrating after you just ripped the last wave. I find that dumb though because I don't want surfing to turn into football or basketball where they celebrate even when they are losing by a ton. And yes I agree the judging was a little messed up. I think Owen shoulda won that heat with that sick last wave he snagged

    Desouza's 8 pointer looked wayyyyyyy overscored. He did 1 floater. They have never scored floaters well on the ASP, all the sudden they are dropping an 8+ for 1 floater? Granted it was a sweet one, and the waves did kinda suck the whole contest.

    your right, owen should have won the heat. Desouza's floater was pretty awesome, but i think the crowd influenced the judges.
