Also to note that Dane knocked Mick out of the comp already early in Rd 2 . The title race is gonna be real tight if Kelly Joel + J John get through a few more heats

Quiksilver could not have asked for a better outcome... Kelly v Dane in the final. Epic.

Shame that Dane broke his board he'd been riding all week before the final. Would be hard on a heavy beachy like that to adjust to a new stick.

Awesome comp all round though.

It's tight in the rankings now...

WOW, Kelly and Mich both eliminated from Portugal...
 
Epic QF between John John and Parko coming up tonight! Cant wait. If Parko can beat JJ, and at least make the final he's going to have a good lead.

Well at least Parko beat JJ & has a decent lead in the title race.

Crazy final though, Julian getting the score with seconds on the clock. Medina should not have let him have that wave... Could see he was shattered on the podium, pretty much crying. Julian was pretty gracious in victory, really handled the situation well considering it's his 1st WCT win.

Bring on Santa Cruz

I am really excited for SC. It is my home break (although I live in Utah now) and it is still anyone race. I think this year will be a nail bitter which is really exciting.
I will be kinda weird if Joel wins at the rate he is going. Will be the turtle in the race, Not winning an event but taking it.

On the adjusted rankings (with 2 throw aways) Kelly is actually in front... Parko needs to finish in front of Kelly at least in both remaining events to win it. They always say you have to actually win events to win the title, this really highlights that. Parko has been way more consistent but just can't win one, three 2nds, 3rds etc.
 
Really coming down to the wire.

Only twice, and I've been surfing for about 15 years.
 
Worst one was a big bronze whaler the popped up between me and another guy about 10m away. Then dissapeared. I'd been in the water on my own for about 45 mins before anyone else came out too, glad I didn't see it then.
 
Pretty sure I've just jinxed myself, I'll see one tomorrow I bet...

the shark question has already been asked in this thread...and answered...but I'll elaborate this time:

I first started surfing in Gulf Shores, Alabama (yes, they do get surfable waves...especially when you're 10 years old), then my parents ended up buying a condo in pensacola.  People don't realize the water can be very clear there and how sharky the gulf really is.  While your surfing a wave, you can see the bottom clearly and you frequently see different sized sharks...and manta rays, sting rays and everything else you run over.

I later moved to south carolina.  The water is kinda murky there so you really aren't as aware of the of the sea life.  However, once I was surfing with my friend in a junky windswell and the water was so churned up with mud it was like chocolate milk (we were the only ones out).  Just sitting there waiting for a wave and, to my horror, I see a fin coming toward me about 20 feet away.  I kinda froze in fear but, somehow, lifted my legs onto the surfboard as the 5 foot hammerhead just mozied right under my board.  I then hauled ass to the beach and was yelling out to my friend when the shark made a B-line right for him and did the exact same thing.  My friend freaked out like a little bitch - it was so shtooking funny watching him scream and flailing to paddle in.

Later, I moved to Ft Lauderdale, but occasionally drove up to areas less shadowed by the bahamas to get better waves.  West Palm beach is grazed by the gulf stream, a current of water that's ultra warm and clear.  One day, a Singer Island local invited us to surf the jetty with him.  We get there and I'm shocked to see every single wave has a school of at least 10 big spinner sharks riding through it.  The guy said it was normal and safe...so we surfed...with schools of sharks in every wave.  Freak show.

Damn!! That's crazy man. In the summer, I'm hitting up the waves everyday in Southern California. Definitely scared of encountering a shark! The fear does cross my mind sometimes, but usually when I get into the water I just forget about everything.

I hope I am never in your shoes man, I don't ever want to encounter anything with a fin besides those friendly dolphins that patrol my breaks.

I did my math the first time and parki was ahead, so i did it again and he wasn't. ha ha.  But it is really anyone race but  I don't know if parko keeps getting 2's and 3's i think he might be able to take it and he has a little bit of room to mess up bc he is dropping a 5th right now, where kelly is dropping a lot lower scores. But it will come down to the last event this year unless something big happens.

I was sad to see Nate to lose to Parko but I didn't want Parko to lose. He has been surfing well in SC and slater hasn't be great but still slater.
I just love the cold water classic growing up surfing SC, it is great to watch videos, if i can't be surfing there.

Jeez I think Parko blew it... With Kelly going out, if Parko could have won it would have been huge.

Bummed for Wilko, I think he deserved the win. Though Taj's 1st turn on his 1st wave in the final was sick!

Yea Wilko had a chance to win but the lane is hard to surf and he need to land a few and he would of won.

It would of helped parko if he could of even pulled a second he would be sitting a lot better. It seems like it is pretty much between parko and slater bc they can't even rank lower than 13th bc they are seeded into that round which i think is kinda foolish. If they are the top 3 in the world they should be able to make it there. 

As Parkinson is the current rankings leader on the ASP WCT, the following ASP World Title scenarios will be based on his potential finishes at Pipeline.

If Parkinson finishes 13th, 9th or 5th at the Billabong Pipe Masters:
- Slater needs a 5th or higher to take the 2012 ASP World Title.
- Fanning needs to win at Pipeline to take the 2012 ASP World Title.*
*Contingent upon Slater finishing 5th or Lower at Pipeline.

If Parkinson finishes Equal 3rd at the Billabong Pipe Masters:
- Slater needs a 3rd or higher to take the 2012 ASP World Title.
- Fanning needs to win at Pipeline to take the 2012 ASP World Title.*
*Contingent upon Slater finishing 5th or Lower at Pipeline.

If Parkinson finishes 2nd at the Billabong Pipe Masters:
- Slater needs to win at Pipeline to take the 2012 ASP World Title.
- Fanning cannot win the 2012 ASP World Title.

If Parkinson wins the Billabong Pipe Masters, he will take the 2012 ASP World Title.

I am hoping Kolohe Andino finds he groove bc he can surf but he didn't come out of the gate as strong as Medina. When your taking down kelly your coming out strong ha ha. I thought Andino would do a lot better at trestles this year b/c he has killed it there in the pass but no luck.

It was weird, the theater was full of older adults (+50) which is really odd for a surfing movie. I think doesn't appeal to the younger generation (not enough sexy and drug) but it was all about surfing so that doesn't appeal too much to the older generation. 
I think it will fail in the box office but I think it will get good personal reviews. 
I think it will do good when it comes to video.

I've been waiting for Andino to explode this year... He's got all the tricks, just hasn't quite found his groove yet. Really dig his style. Medina for me is to formulaic, air reverse, air reverse etc. He doesn't have great style/flow, but his airs ARE ridiculous.
 
C'mon Parko!!! He must be stressing waiting for Pipe to start.

I went home to CA for thanksgiving and went to Santa Cruz. It felt so nice to get out in the water but my arms lost so much for paddling. I went to the lane and took a small one right along the rocks but decide that was a bad idea bc it has been over a year. I went to the middle peak and got a few good lefts which was nice bc I am goof and my backside is really hurting. So much fun.

Have any of you guys used the surfboard mount for GoPro before? I'm probably going to buy one to use when I come back to CA for winter break.

My question is...is the 3M sticky pad better than the FCS plug? I was just looking at youtube reviews and most people used the sticky pad, that's why I ask.

I have the gopro mount on my board. I would rather have the fcs one but that is a lot more work b/c you have to get on put in your board, not many people have an FCS plug on there nose. I haven't had any major problems with M3 mount. What i don't like about it is the camera angle isn't high enough for me. Maybe I put it too high on the nose but i don't think so.

I would imagine the FCS plug is more secure. What do you mean the angle isn't high enough...wouldn't that be solved by mounting the camera closer to the nose?

Anyone surf in Ventura last weekend?  Great swell...a little too much for my beginner skills but still gave it a go.

Joel won! I was kinda hoping Shane was going to take out Kelly. It kinda showed me that not only kelly at his age can compete. I think only Kelly could of taken out Shane so soon.

He really is a freak of nature... 41 years old and still at the top of the game.

Shame they only got Kirra for 3 heats, but man they were good heats.

got some surf in today even though it was low tide and dying. tomorrow holds promise though cause its a good day for diving and getting lobster before the season ends. its nice to get a board sport in when the mountains are hot.

Yea its sad that the snowboarding season is coming to an end but im happy about the surf picking up and not having to wear a 4/3 anymore. My surf spots are still sporadic with 1-2 ft waves but there have been a few good sets the last few days.
