Goodwill Rock Throwing?

Friday, June 29th, 2007

From Sean Collin’s official response:

There were mixed accusations of rock throwing to clear the water before I arrived, and we certainly do not support rock throwing and/or physical violence of any kind. Additionally, we certainly did not direct in any way the removal of people from the water or the security for the event as it was handled entirely by the local Barra police. We also did not insist on everyone being removed from the water before we arrived.

I’ve only got one thing to say after watching this video…. Holy shit! That chick rips!

A Moment Of Clarity In The Sufline Mess

Friday, June 29th, 2007

My favorite comment about the Surfline Disaster comes from an expat currently living in Mex…

Yes they got some things wrong, but the event concept is good and it attracts attention to a good cause (you don’t even know how badly small mexican towns need hospitals, schools and sewage treatment plants). My hope is that Surfline can tweak the concept a bit, work more closely with local authorities, get the details right and make this an annual event that forces larger surf events to think about having charitable components of their contests or risk looking outdated, insensitive and overly capitalistic.

Goodwill Tour Fiasco

Thursday, June 28th, 2007

The Surfline Goodwill Tour Fiasco keeps getting worse. In addition to the Puerto girls who were on the wrong end of rocks thrown from the cliffs, Australian surfers were physically attacked by people working for the event. I’ve heard the same basic story from another source as well.

Kelly Quits?

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

More TWS video of the Rip Curl event… the Dean Morrison vs. Kelly Slater heat that has the press speculating on Kelly’s retirement. I don’t see it happening. A related Surfline story paints a picture of the whole tour rooting against the man.
