With the big price already assigned, today they ran a tandem surfing contest that wasn't really part of the best waterman trophy.
It was the first stop of the world tandem surfing tour, though. And I got to judge it...
It was easy, because we only had to score the surfing part and then an expert guy told us the range to choose from for the figures. Like:"that was between 3 and 5". Piece of cake.
Here's an example of the figures you can do on a tandem surfboard... after a little practice.
Don't try that at home!
My favorite in number 3.
The spinning version of number 42 is actually called "the helicopter". Just kidding...
Trust me. Even being alone on a surfboard today would have tough. Shifty peaks of a short period windswell. Steep take offs at the point. Windy enough for Kai Lenny and his dad Martin to be blasting around on their windsurfers at 9am, before the contest started.
I was literally blown away by what those guys did in those conditions.
I was even able to take some photos while judging (I could still see the ride in the screen of the camera). Here are the best ones.
Let's start with a couple that had a stunningly beautiful female part.
This one, instead, is the couple that won. She is over 50!
Look at this. The body of the guy was prolly the best male body I've ever seen. No shit. Even better than mine!!!!!
And now, the same two couples from a different perspective.
Click on them and try to get lost in them. It's quite trippy.
Allright, thanks a lot to Tristan Boxford for putting together such a killer event. It made my healing days exciting instead of boring.
And with an incredible timing, my cuts are now healed enough to allow me to go back in the water tomorrow.
And that, you guys, is bloody good news!
