It’s John John Day! Join Chas and David as they celebrate JJF’s 2nd World Title, JFlo’s 2nd Pipe Masters win, and Dirty Gabe’s perennial villain status. The boys discuss why God forsaked Gabriel, why the WSL judges need to stay in Santa Monica all year long, the break-up of surfing’s biggest power couple, and why Stephanie Gilmore should draw a hulking man on her surfboard. Take the candy!

CONGRATULATIONS DEREK RIELLY!
THE PIPE MASTERS
Congrats to JJF for winning your 2nd World Title
Congrats to Jeremy Flores for winning your 2nd Pipe Masters title
Is the Florence vs Flores final the most similar sounding last name final ever?? Only 2 letters difference.
Should Gabe embrace the role of the villain? He seems to be the only person who doesn’t recognize his status. Should he be worried about becoming Damien Hardman 2.0? Is the Brazilian Storm stealing his thunder?
With title hopes on the line, was @gabrielmedina’s blocking tactic warranted? The WSL created a block-prevention rule due to Gabriel’s performance in Tahiti. Should they further amend the rule to prevent this type of blocking? Will Gabe’s legacy be his surfing or his tactics? Discuss! ?? @kellyslater
A lot of people are bringing this up as a comparison, but there are a few clear distinctions. Does it matter that, A) @kellyslater actually surfed the wave for a score, B) Kirra is inherently less dangerous than Pipe, C) Kelly surfs away from @joelparko rather than towards him, presuming that @gabrielmedina was hoping Kelly would make contact and render an interference. ? Discuss! ?? (Footage front the 2013 Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast)
There can only be 1 Dora. Thankfully, the Brazlian wunderknid’s parents, in a deft move with ingenious foresight branded their boy as Yago. Nicely done.
