Now that I’m sitting here thinking about it. Simply cutting rounds is not a viable solution. The problem goes much deeper than that. I wasn’t entirely wrong, however. The problem is definitely with the archaic surf contest system, but it’s with a different aspect.
The problem is that no one is punting airs.
No one is digging rail like a psycho.
No one is attacking.
No one is flipping.
No one is spinning.
Surfing in contests needs to be radicalized.
The judging needs to reward this radicalization.
John John should not have to dumb down his surfing to satisfy the judges’ obsolete criteria.
