KELLY SLATER IS INTRODUCED TO THE CROWD

Yesterday Monday the 5th was the opening Ceremony in New York. The day began at 11 am with a traditional Hawaiian Lei ceremony blessing the event given by Hawaiian ambassadors of Aloha Mel Pu'u and Titus Kinimaka. All the surfers lined up and then the blessing was given in traditional Hawaiian language and Leis were put on all the surfers.

Kelly Slater was given the microphone and spoke to the crowd about his excitement in surfing his first competition in New York, also mentioning that being form Florida he feels nicely close to home compared to where he normaly surfs.

Shortly after the ceremony it was announced that only expression sessions would be held, and already in the water were famous pro's such as Bede Duridge, Adrian Buchan, Joel Parkinson, Freddy Patacchia, Taylor Knox and other pros amazing the crowd with their high flying manouvers.

Owen Wrights Revenge

Yesterday was one of those days where you turn to your wife and say "honey the kids are staying home from school", and by the looks of things on the beach either the unemployment rate is very high or a lot of people called in sick to work. Either way you did not want to miss the action.

Bad weather brings good waves

Every surfer knows that you need low pressure and bad weather to make good surf, and the sky was grey and rainy here today in New York as the contest has begun. We woke up to offshore winds and a small groundswell, enough to run the first round. The swell is only growing and by the time the finals come around in a few days we will see the largest surf. Everyone is starting to see what Long Beach can offer.

Its amazing what these guys can do in small surf. On a day you might pass up, these pros are turning nothing into something. By the time you make one bottom turn they make 3 slashes.

Talking to the pros on a practice day

Yesterday Saturday September 3th was a day of practice, the contest site was still getting its finishing touches and it was a perfect day to see some of the pros in the surf without the crowds. One might think that the pro's are unavailable or have attitudes of greatness, well, exactly the opposite.

Crocodiles in the Ocean: Myth or Truth?

How many times have you heard the rumor that crocodiles surf the ocean during September and October? Surely several times, especially if you live in Playa Guiones, Peladas or Ostional. But many times rumors are just that, rumors, so in order to free myself from all doubt I have taken on the task of finding out if this is true or not.
