Another day of sun tanning and eating croissants for the ou's in the QuikPro. But looks like things should be a go again for tomorrow. Forecasts show a decent swell arriving late tomorrow arvo, with some grinding 6-8ft sets pulling through on Wednesday...and then things easing off again towards the weekend.
Jordy's been beating the flat day blues by missioning down to the Wavegarden in Spain. Nothing wrong with 100m perfect peelers every 3 minutes.
Parko is gonna be doing his utmost to actually win his next heat by himself, instead of being gifted by the judges. His Rd 2 "win" against the local wildcard has the internet abuzz. Checking out the heat review one has to admit its hard to work out how on earth he got scored higher than Marc on both those waves. An 8.50 for a cutback and 2 standard snaps has gotto be a gift any day of the year.
