Lame, Lame, Lame!! Boring, fucking Boring!! Like my 3 year old daughter used to say, "Same Same Daddy"!! That comp was lame and fodder and if KS can surf that well on his wittle bwoken foot, then why did he puss out at Snappers/Kirra and Bells?!?! Candy Ass Backyard Pussy!!! I can't wait until Jeffreys, "AGAIN". Mick got attacked by a Great White and went back; Don't be a "PUSSY" Jimmy Slade!!! All eyes on you kid, but, in my personal opinion, your contest was LAME!!!

the WSL pros surf so flawlessly. they make it look too easy. They need to mix in some ESA and NSSA surfers to show just how difficult that wave can be.

"I wish they could slow the wave down a bit so they can do full turns consistently without getting left behind."

Shouldn't everybody have a remote to set the wave to match their floor routine?

And what about the music?  

KIDDING! ONLY KIDDING! (I'd love to ride it)

I'm sure it will be a hit for the masses watching on TV but I found it a little too much of a marketing gimmic. Each time a surfer did well the camera would pan back to the team tent and show all the other team members jumping up and down. Couldn't get use to that. I was hoping they could change the wave up a bit to make it more interesting but it was really the same thing over and over- although it was interesting watching the pros milk every ounce of potential out it. And what's with the tighty shorts? Couldn't watch it a second day. Who won?

Video never does justice to the difficulty factor when it comes to wave quality and performance. I mean some of the mistakes those guys made were hard to watch. Parkos first two waves come to mind. When the paying public starts riding that wave there is going to be a lot of crying, wishing for a do overs. They will probably just soften it up for liability purposes.

You are a master in surf that size, maybe we can get you a heat and make it interesting by running you against one of the female up and comers?

KS, you out there? Let's do this!

And Catpiss, whats lame and boring is you, crying over a squandered career. Have you ever thought that maybe the reason he bypassed Kirra and Bells, was so he wouldn't blow his opportunity to be a part of the what may go down as the crown jewel of his legacy. Its called planning and priority. Those are life management skills. Get over yourself.

Looks like a fun wave, but I thought it was incredibly boring to watch. I lasted about 10 minutes before I turned it off. I'm just glad it's over. The high level of hype and promotion for this event was pretty obnoxious in my opinion. Let's get back to the ocean please.

Stumbled on to a few replays on YouTube of Kelly and Fanning, etc. That wave is awesome, 45 seconds! I couldn't imagine. The crowd was stoked I heard, not as exciting as Nazure but pretty damn cool anyway.

Only two things I'd rather watch more than the contest, MyCatSprays surfing it along with some of the ESA, NSSA groms, and the replays of a few of the surfers. I just wish they filmed the whole event like they have with other ones where you can fast forward to the wave highlights like in the old Heat recap.

There are replays in the WSL app. On the main page hit the toolbar on the upper left-hand side, then select 'watch'.

Uncle Rico is back at it again.

So, so jealous of the king. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetically sad.

Just my opinion, but I thought it was kinda boring to watch as well. The sameness of the waves forces everyone to surf it the same way. Don't get me wrong, I bet it's a blast to surf, but a lot of the waves were ridden the same, particularly on the left. It was almost like a diving event or compulsory portion of ice skating or gymnastics competition. With the exception of falls there wasn't a lot to separate the performances. A big part of surfing is wave selection, and in this case that's a non-factor. The format for this contest made it a little more interesting, but the judges are going to have a tough time scoring heats for the tour event.

Saw highlights from social media feeds. And I agree with some of the posters above, that it looked like a big marketing gimmick. The WSL is going broke, and they've been changing their strategy to appeal more to the masses. Surfers can't sustain the industry, because we don't want to buy, watch, click... we want to go surfing.

I am not hating on Kelly too. This is a different chapter of his life, and if you have been following him closely you would have noticed it too. He wants to go big, and leave another mark that is outside of winning contests. Leading up to SurfRanch he had a bunch of pet projects, but this wavepool is the one that has the biggest potential to go worldwide.
