Fred Pawle Surf Writer, The Australian
For the first time in years, drones have given me an entirely new perspective on something I thought I already knew. They have turned the most mundane scenes into moments of amazing beauty.
Michael Peterson, the Queensland surfer who was widely regarded as the best in the world before proper world titles were introduced, has died. He was 59.
A recent fight between two Hawaiian surfers has led to speculation about a revival of international tension during the Hawaiian leg of the pro tour.
Gabriel Medina won the Rip Curl Pro, but he couldn’t fly his flag during the post-victory celebration. Simple question: Why not?
The Association of Surfing Professionals will introduce drug testing of athletes next year. The decision was made at an ASP board meeting in San Francisco yesterday.
When Kelly Slater won his 11th world title, one of the greatest moments in surfing – and sporting – history was diminished by being staged in the equivalent of a lumpy, dried-out suburban footy ground.
Ian Cairns said the ASP “had its tail between its legs” regarding the fight as it might have “repercussions” when the circus hits Hawaii.
“Every single person I talked to, said there was more to it (than a mere obituary),” Melekian said. “I couldn’t ignore that.”
