    HI David,

    Can you pass this on to Bassy?

    Hi Bassy, Yeah Guy!!!

    I take some exception to your idea to turn Hawaii into the Finals of the World Title. Sure, we all love it when it comes down to do or die at heaving Pipe. I want to see that too. But the reality is that Pipe sometimes runs at 3-4ft. Guys do airs out there to win heats. And who says that the bloke who excels in 10ft Left Hand Barrels is necessarily the best surfer in the world?

    The reality is that to be the champ you have to do well in all sorts of waves and all sorts of conditions. To have a Hawaiian final series DEVALUES all the other events on tour. How is a win at JBay, Bells or Trestles any less important that a win at Pipe? Are Kelly’s 11 titles devalued because he had most of them wrapped up by the end of the Pacific leg?

    I was thumping my steering wheel harder than you thump the desk when you started on that thought bubble!!

    Keep up the good work though, I’m thoroughly entertained!

    Adam

    Mate, keep up the good pod. You guys need to get some t-shirts to sell. “Yeah Guy” on the front, “Shred On!” on the back!!!
