Anyone know where WSL Commentator Joe Turpel has been? He suddenly vanished and none of the other WSL Commentators have mentioned where he is. I've looked at all of his social media and have found no clues. Illness? Family emergency? Just weird to me that theres no explanation. He's my favorite commentator and love to hear him alongside Potz. Not the same with Kaipo.. Where are you Joe!?

My guess is just an event off.. They seem to get at least 1 off a season. 

Rosey Hodge is the real missing one. No events yet.

I was wondering about Joe Turpel too and whether the broadcasts had to downsize with Samsung pulling out as a sponsor.

I like Barton Lynch's insights. If I never hear Potz again, I will be happy.

Yeah potz is pretty annoying to be honest, used to hate on Peter Mel but he's grown on me over the years. I for one can't wait til Mason Ho starts his broadcast career.

So I direct messaged Rosy Hodge on instagram and guess what, she actually responded! She said she's not on the broadcast because she's waiting on her green card to be approved for the US (she's from africa) and the laws have recently changed. It takes 3 months. And she said Joe Turpel is taking Bells off due to a personal thing but will be back next event.

Nothing to be worried about I guess with Joe. Im gonna do some research on the new travel laws to make an informed opinion on Rosys situation.

In my best Turpel voice: " Such a great and informed comment from one of our heros that we have always looked upon.........

Barton Lynch has been pretty good with the interviews. Guy has more stoke than a 10 year old grom on Red Bull.
