    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.

    that was such bull****. I watched the final. adriano got like a 8.0 for doing 3 backside turns on a waist high wave. i was pissed. brazil sucks. i want to see taj or parko finally win a world title

    Are the ASP Judges the same at every event?

    the waves really were terrible. I have been living in Florianopolis, Brazil for the past two months (the asp contest was in santa catarina last year). Brazil is a beautiful country, (especially the women) but to tell you the truth the surf is really not that spectacular (east coast atlantic). I can always surf a waist plus wave almost everyday, and severy so often spots here can be world class, but it really isn't the place to handle a world tour event. Imagine surfing snapper's then coming to rio de janeiro to surf beach break slop? It was not even enjoyable to watch. I really hope quiksilver LI isnt a catastrophe.
