🌊🏄🏂🌍🙏🌊🏄🏂🌍🙏2017-11-21The announcement of the 2018 wslCT schedule and the disappearance of Trestles to the benefit of the kswavecosurfranch doesn't really come as a surprise: it is the normal progression from a financial strategy which started with the acquisition of the ASP by Zosea Media Holdings in 2012, and more markedly, the rebranding of the surf association to WorldSurfLeague in 2015: the 'league' strategy showed a move towards the professionalisation of media assets management on an NFL model, i.e. big bucks on broadcasting rights (for reference, the rakes in $39.6bn on TV networks alone, to which you should add the growing online and mobile telecasts). A revamped WSL site and new apps were just foreplay, giving time to the Brazilianstorm to explode: an estimated 24 million Brazilians watched the RioPro in 2015, which goes some way explaining why 🇧🇷 is still on the 2018 schedule, whereas Cascais was dropped, leaving Supertubos 🇵🇹 in a precarious situation.
Conditions at Trestles have been fickle and as we all know, nothing rivals the perfection of kellyslater's manmade wave: and as every like proves, it's all about the AFrame, isn't it?
The FijiPro had Aframes galore, but as far as the WSL is concerned, it's a ToxicAsset to drop ('inappropriate support from the government of Fiji' was the official reason, by which we can only assume as per last week's post that the🇫🇯 government is guilty of being busy spending on climatechange survival rather than on 1stworld surf jet-setters). Maybe this announcement is a good wake-up call to what we truly hold dear in surfing: not just the perfect barrel, but the human experience. Not just the photo or video that can be capitalised on, not the 'you can't script this' tagline scripted by teams of marketeers, but unadulterated invaluable and free stoke. Enjoy while it lasts.

Before going to Long Point my goal was to capture a penguin with a surfer on a wave. Somehow all the pieces of the puzzle came together and created one of my favorite photos that I've ever taken.
