From a no-go zone in July to a wave bonanza – that’s the hope for the next pointscore in August.
Everyone is hanging out to drill holes in the reef and discover some gold to help claim the richest treasure in the southern hemisphere – a Shoes World Title.
We just need Huey to play ball and provide some decent, consistent swell. After so many non-contests in season 2013, all three Titles are hanging by a thread.
So the prayers go out for an ocean full of smoking lines for 10-11 August.
With so much pent-up enthusiasm among club troops to cut loose, if the waves do arrive the sounds of snaps, filthy bottom turns, mile-long floaters, Hail Marys and six second tube extravaganzas will be heard around the globe. The thousands of spectators that normally line the shoreline to watch in amazement as a Shoes contest unfolds will quickly turn into tens of thousands.
The ASP will be begging for an exclusive webstream and Joel Parkinson will be flying in from the Goldie aching for a start in heat 3.
