Little River Band “Time For Cool Change” from the Wayne Lynch segment of Storm Riders
MATT WARSHAW: “And then Joe Turpel. During a trifling Round Two heat between a couple of backbenchers, Peter Mel, from the channel, reported that he wasn’t sure if Glen Simpson was or was not riding a quad, and Turpel replied “Thanks for the insight, Pete!” at which point a rhesus monkey began flinging itself against the opposing sides of my skull because Mel’s comment was exactly, definitively, almost scientifically the opposite of insightful. Turpel hurts me on a both a professional and personal level.”
I chatted briefly with Matt about his opinions. We agreed, low hanging fruit, easy to chide them; we both discussed how to make it better.
I think they should identify a number one broadcast team: call it Ronnie Blakely and Ross Williams and hold them back from the broadcast until round 5. That we the viewer get fresh insight for the business end of the contest, and from a production standpoint, you can weave in their insights from the early part of the draw with footage from early rounds, this keeps action and input coming at the viewers with a fresh feel.
You’D ID key heats that you want them to cover…
THE WSL should consider Matt’s Beach Grit QnA as a WIN> The fact that we are discussing ways to improve the WSL means we are at the least engaged; we might not be entertained the whoel time, but we are engaged.

10 GREATEST NON-SURFING MOMENTS IN PRO SURFING HISTORY
Top 10 non-surfing moments in pro surfing competition history:
1. Mick Fanning attacked by Great White Shark at JBay
2. 2002 at Lowers; the Star Spangled Banner played at LOWERS event on 9/11 one year after tragedy.
3. Mick Campbell punches Andy Irons at the showers following a heat
4. David Nuuhiwa’s twin fin fish hung in effigy over the OB Pier during the 72 World Contest.
5. Taj Burrow chased out of the surf by GWS at Jbay
6. 1st ever Pipeline Masters — Pipeline prodigy Gerry Lopez of Hawaii was a no-show—allegedly because third-place finisher Corky Carroll of California told Lopez the event had been postponed.
7. The Huntington Beach riots during the OP Pro – August 31, 1986 – hundreds of youth went wild burning police cars and looting.
8. The Hug – At the height of the great AI / Kelly Slater rivalry – although some would suggest benign rivalry—moments prior to the final Kelly Slater runs up to Andy Irons and mysteriously hugs Andy Irons prior to the final telling him that he loved him – some suggesting an attempt by Slater to get into AI’s head. Some mental gamesmanship.
9. In 1975, Michael Peterson’s paranoia compelled him to hid in the parking lot after winning his third consecutive Bells Beach title, convinced that if he walked up to accept his prize check, spectators “were going to start throwing things at me.”
10. Dead Ahead Fred. With competitors balking at the request of contest promoter Fred Hemmings to paddle out in 30-foot Waimea bay for the 1974 Smirnoff Pro. So Fred Hemmings challenged them all asking them if they would surf if he paddled out and caught a wave. They said yes, he paddled out, caught a wave and the most cataclysmic big wave event ever went on with Reno Abellira winning.

RACE FACE: Stu Gibson’s drone footage of a precarious right-hander in New Zealand that peels above shallow boulders for 100-200 yards.
KOOK OF THE WEEK: Plains All American, the company who owns the pipeline which ruptured off of Santa Barbara. Potentially a ‘crime scene’.
As a crew prepared to excavate the pipe that had spilled hundreds of barrels of oil into the Pacific, Santa Barbara’s District Attorney Joyce Dudley was on the spot Monday, of a mind to consider it a “potential crime scene.” Her office has prosecuted multiple environment-related cases in the past, she said, and could possibly take on the Refugio spill, though she could not comment on the particulars. She’ll be meeting with federal prosecutors this week to discuss the possibilities.
