The Shakeup at Cloudbreak

Down go….all the top seeds!

Yesterday, the waves weren’t classically Cloudbreak with its nauseating power and exploding whitewater displays that we’ve come to expect.  And that’s okay.  It’s not ideal, but it’s okay, because this is a sport where athletes deal expertly with wild oceans and storms and swells.  It’s a wonderful hybrid of bull-riding and storm chasing, and that’s part of why we love it.  We get to see premier athletes attempt to tame these beasts that we would never dare enter the ring with.

Although, sometimes, we look at the conditions, or cattle, and think to ourselves, “We could have done that.”  Like I said, it’s not ideal, but it’s okay.

You have to adapt, and that’s what we should also expect.  It’s not ideal, but it’s okay, at least until the wave pools rise up and take over.  Can’t wait for the Oklahoma City Pro Invitational 2022.
