and my whole fs team just got massacred in the quarters....
few issues, maybe, in those early rounds,..anyway, really things were firing,.. going great and then they move the comp for the semi and final and they **** themselves. i say JJF got screwed over some, i turned it off, then by the time i turn it back on, i am greeted to J. Wilson ranting at the end of his heat.. Just saying,, the good vibe died for some reason.

I'm stoked for this final four though. 4 of my favorite surfers and I'd have to look but I think it's the final four from the Hurley where I predicted 3 of the 4. I know there are several pros that were expected to do well in this event or were at least hot lately on the tour that didn't advance this far. But I'm stoked with who we are looking at now. Just guys I really like to watch ride.
Btw, when I was last in the PNW I heard a rumor that the final scene in Point Break said to be at Bells was really shot at a certain cove in OR.

Although the final scene of the film is set at Bells Beach, the scene was not filmed there. Bells Beach is a straight stretch and the beach in the film is a cove with spruce trees atop a hill. The actual location of the film was a beach called Indian Beach, in Ecola State Park, located in Cannon Beach, Oregon, USA.

Not sure what happened to my account. Didn't update it for 2 events and my whole roster got dumped out. In years past, if you just leave your lineup how it is, it stays active all year...
Bummer. Shoulda paid attention, I was doing pretty well.

the thing I hate the most of these aussie contests is the bias judging.i know theres judges that represent each part of the world,but stop throwing these scores out.micks winning wave was a high 8 and if Kelly did a ride like that hed get a 4.he threw no spray whatsoever.jordy does some crazy turns and loses.john john does a nice air,a 10,no more like micks winning score a high 8.i remember the gold coast last yr,parko started off the semis with a 10 for 2 barrels 1 wave that he barely got coverd up.kelly in the finals rides that sandsucking closeout and gets a 9 instead of a 10.iv been watching contests for a long time,10 yrs ago u had to earn a 10,they didn't throw them out like they do now
heres an example from the past

You can't really compare scoring in different rounds. It's always on a sliding scale. If they give a 7 and the next wave in the heat is better it's going to be scored higher and so on with each wave... So you can have a drainer in round two that's an 8 and a few turns in the final that's a 9.
I think it was CJ last year in Bali that was *****ing that he was scored too high on his 1st wave.
