The Roundup: Rebels, Dane Reynolds, Supertubos, Mundaka Pumping and Jamie O’Brien on Cloud 9

23 10 2009


What is this? Two updates in one day? The Roundup is a compilation of recommended clicks in the world of surfing. The Rip Curl Pro Search Portugal is underway. Round one was completed earlier today at marginal Lagido. Still no Supertubes (pictured above). Round two features some good match-ups highlighted by Kelly Slater vs. Owen Wright. Dave Mailman is providing  the webcast commentary.

While the ASP hides in Portugal.

I love Pottz reponding to all the online critisism of Mick Fanning’s scores against Pay G by saying that Pat needs to do more than just one manoevre… that doing three to the beach isn’t going to cut it. He levels this critique at Pay G.

Meanwhile, after company man White Lightening’s last scoring ride, Pottz says “that won’t better his high scoring ride…” just before the judges drop their scores, which, suprise!, happened to be a full point better than Mick’s previous high score. Pat G is out of luck at this point. Potzz remains silent.

Mailman, you need someone like Peter Mel to do commentary with you. Potzz is a puppet in the booth.

Parko better punctuate Fanning’s footnote in history by smashing him at Pipe.

I don’t get it. Was that Dane Reynolds video purposefully horrible? And the music made me want to kill someone…or myself.
