DUKE

Olamana Eleogram for always entertaining us each year at the Triple Crown. His 10 point ride last week at Haleiwa was his most recent feat. He broke his leg during the Pipe event last year, after a great season. His 10 point ride at Sunset in 2010 is also worth revisiting (see the 2nd video). And, of course, he’s married to Monyca Byrne (Wickey) Eleogram! You’re a hero, Ola!

061 – #TOURNOTES with Peter King

Play

#TOURNOTES! It’s the dessert course after every ‘CT event. We’ve been hyping the series since it launched nearly 2 years. David even makes a cameo in the very first episode! (Scroll down to the very first video on this page to see). The video series is produced by the incomparable Peter King. With 52 episodes and over 1 million views of the past 2 episodes alone, it’s no wonder why StabMag.com called him “surfings most powerful journalist.” We Google’d Peter and found very little information, so we thought, let us be the first to share the story of Peter King, straight from the man himself. Enjoy!

Make sure to follow Peter King on Instagram @PeterKingLaJolla

Here’s the complete #TOURNOTES series in reverse chronological order (as of 11/8/14).




















































David was one the beach, filming with Brett Simpson, when Peter King showed up and produced his very first episode of #TOURNOTES. David used some of the footage from that session in this edit. Peter’s version is the video above entitled, “#TOURNOTES with Brett Simpson”, where you can see David in the background at the 1:03 mark.

KOOK

Julian Wilson for being in a position to not re-qualify for the 2015 CT and for not backing up his standing in the Prime events. Poor career move for one of the world’s finest surfers. He’s currently in 21st position. If he finishes 22nd or lower, he will not re-qualify.
