Yeah, I saw that, so SICK. He was ruling that heat. Slater was just rubbing his hands watching Mick go down I bet.

Yeah, talk about gnarly shorebreak. Dane just changed the world title race big time today by knocking Mick out. The door has opened up big time for Parko, Kelly and John John to tighten this thing up.

The quartefinals were insane!!! The final two heats with the bombs that Joel and Slater rode = WTF! Shorebreak keggers...

The Semi's (and Final) are stacked with Dane, John John, Parko and King Kelly. By the time we wake up tomorrow it may be all completed, with the 9 hr time difference. Heat recaps and heat analyzers, thank you...

Joel and Kelly were so on. That 10 pt tube Joel got was epic, but Kelly's no hand bs tube was also. John John and Dane were looking way hot and at ease too. Some quality contest action going down. 15 years ago we'd be waiting two months to get these results and pics in the magz, now it's all Live!

Over the last two years, the quality of the web casting and content availability have just been fantastic. I can hook my laptop up to my HD tv and get a great broadcast. And the replay and heat analyzer features are insane when they have em working correctly.

Livin in good times....

Wow, Ke11y back on top. The race for the title is so tight right now. If you throw out the bottom two scores from the current point totals for the top four guys (which is how the final tally is calculated), Kelly has jumped to the top of the pack.

Adjusted ASP World Title point totals:

Kelly           43,200
Mick            39,500
Parko          37,000
John John  33,400

If Parko or J Florance are going to have a chance to win this thing, they pretty much need to take home a trophy in one of the last three events.

If Kelly or Mick post any results lower than an equal 9th place and fail to get a result higher than an equal 5th duruing the final run to Pipe, the door will be fully open again. One more win by either Kelly or Mick with a low result by the other three could put them over the top. But by no means is this thing even close to being over.

The whole title could easily come down to the final event at Pipeline.

To bad Dane decided to be the coolest surfer in the world instead of the best surfer in the world. This could have been an epic year with him in the mix for realz!

(edit) In all the interviews I saw with Dane, he was super stoked to be there. Now that is awesome news!!!!

Final Three Events:
Portugal        10/10
Santa Cruz    11/1
Pipe Masters  12/8

The thing that amazed me was how easy Parko, Kelly, JJF, and Dane made riding those nasty grinding beach break barrels look.

I'll bet they grew up riding stuff like that....  I always loved fast hollow beach grinders like Westwards, Zuma & the Nards...
