Tuned in watching this now.
I love watching live surf contest footage as opposed to polished surf-films.
You see them out back, choosing their waves, positioning better, see how they take off, and sometimes miss waves they've paddled for. See them fall-off, and get pummelled by the white-water, and you realize they're mortals like us.
Much better to learn from IMO than production films.
Only just started, could be a late night!
