    I thought it was an interesting interview. I understand Slater's take on divorcing the sponsors from the competitions, but it really isn't that much different from sports like Golf or Tennis where they have a big lead sponsor. So, I'm not sure what would be the ideal setup?

    you should be ashamed of yourself!! you're confusing Sway, mtv reporter and musically-inclined intellectual with Sal, who's... well, just busy being way more extreme than anyone else ever

    the main reason, as i understand it, is b/c the SPONSORS (hurley, rip curl, etc...) own the rights to the footage, NOT the ASP. in golf, the PGA still owns the rights to the footage from the tournament, not the main sponsor.

    i enjoyed the interview, but found that there's only just so much actual substance there...i'm sure slater had more to say on the state of pro surfing, on health & wellness, etc...that didn't make the edit of the interview that we all got to see. but it does confirm that mr. slater is one athlete from whom i'd like to hear more about what goes on inside his head. it helps, too, that he's articulate & well-spoken & clearly intelligent.

    i agree...**** if you dont have sponsors whos gonna give them free boards, wetsuits, wax, shirts, shoes, shorts, pants, belts, belt buckles, wallets, sunglasses, stickers, board bags, air plane tickets, hotel rooms, alcoholic beverages...i need to change careers

    I swear Slater is Poseidon because everything he says somehow works out in his way haha. And yea it is because that contest is probably the largest revenue generator for surfing in the US. whoever picks it up has big shoes to fill. honestly, based off the interview, it would be interesting if the ASP did. however, its in CA at one of the largest surf brand home bases so i think somebody will. I hope Volcom does. Everything that Volcom has been doing lately has been working really well

    Yeah, I loved the Fiji coverage this year. Also, wasn't Volcom absorbed by a larger company? they probably have the $ to take over this now
