    Big Wave World Tour (BWWT)

    Just saw that they finally put together a big wave world tour. What do you guys think is this the right direction for big wave surfing? One things for sure I can't wait to watch the live webcam and see guys pushing the limits in 30+ waves.

    I thought it already existed ... didn't Greg Long win it last year and Peter Mel the year before that? Or was that simply a ranking system?

    Your correct I read it wrong. The Asp acquired the BWWT and is going to make it more official and try and shed more light on big wave surfing.

    I think it will be a good thing, especially since Zosea will be taking over the webcasting. Previous BWWT contests had horrible webcasts with the worst quality imaginable.

    I think they are following the money.

    Surfers want to watch high performance surfing. Everyone wants to watch surfers ride giant waves.

    What we really need is a Pier Shotting World Tour. Just picture it: Weaving through the pilings at Honeyton Pier on a 23 footer in an orange powder-coated chain MEAL wetsuit (impresses the heck out of all the Hindus in bikinis). You could have a seperate category for gigantic, un-maneuverable wooden boards just to make it more challenging...

    Yea they want to make it so regular ASP guys can compete in Big Waves as well. I like the idea, I just hope it works. I can totally see Kelly saying screw regular tour that ****s easy, and going to conquer big waves. Which, of course, he could easily.
