Strider Wasilewski From The Channel

Strider Wasilewski lost rock-paper-scissors to Peter Mel to give us this exclusive water commentary.

“Hey Guys its Strider reporting live from the water. We just watched Mick Fanning rip the shit out of the inside bowl. Please can I come into the announcers booth, I’m freezing my ass off.”

Hey Pottz Why Don’t You Come Out Here?

Equipment malfunction?  We think not!

Brother responds appropriately.

The Central Coast native letting the tour know how he feels about his equipment after taking the L Train to Bog Town. Commissioner Kieren Perrow was seen quietly fuming behind the bleachers, spastically uttering  “fuck that guy” under his breath. Honestly, here at Surf Heater, we think the WSL needs more cussing, more bird-flipping, more nut grabbing.  Onya!

Staying Busy, No Blowies

And we’re off.  The first heat was underwhelming to say the least.  Second heat live and running.  Julian Wilson has been the patient vet while the other two competitors have been frantically paddling around, taking off on everything that rolls through.  Hardly any lip-strength to these waves, though – we’ve seen both Stuey boy and Adam Melling end rides rather quickly after bogging at the top of a turn.  It’s going to be a power-driven, grindhouse kind of day unless the swell offers up a little more.  No complaints. We’re just glad it’s on.
