    1) Ah the Brazilian Storm……

    It’s funny how Bassy and David can so wholeheartedly disagree on their “stereotypical Brazilian”. Two different generations I guess. David sees them as high flying and light weight (as many do) Felipe’s and Pupo’s, while Scott thinks they are the kind of flailing, heavy footed, QS grinding Jojo Ovilencia and Peterson Rosa types. David cling to the idea of Brazilians not charging heavy waves, but props for the Guillerme Herdy (Really good tuberider and stylish surfer from the 90’s, even if he wore his leash on the wrong foot). Really, it’s not his fault, it is a product of how the Brazilians are covered in the US.

    PS) Wiggolly has been charging Pipe for years.

    2) David-After burning a ASP rulebook and punching a guy in the face during a trials heat, JOB will never get a wildcard. The only reason he gets in to Pipe is because they can’t keep him out of the event.

    3) Tom Curren Trial to Champion- didn’t ASP give him the wildcard entry everytime he failed to get through the trials?
