This is awesome! Looks like a typical, frustrating day at OB... scattered, inconsistent shape, peaks popping up but always 50 yards away. Even the pros are like - wtf.

super enthusiastic crowd where I was standing, a lot of hooting and clapping, we were all rooting for Dane to land one of those airs in the second heat. cool wetsuits too. now work calls, bummer.

How late will they run it today? Got to see the first two heats. Saw a few barrels. Backside 360. Stoked. But then had to go to work. Not as stoked. Hoping to get back out there before they're done.

Parko: "I chose the wrong board for today. It started creeping up on us. I got hassled by a local down there, he stole my wave."
Taj: "It tougher out there than it looks like on the beach."

Pretty damn cool. Jordy is owning it so far.

Shark break. Dusty Payne "I've seen dolphins, that was definitely not a dolphin"

who thinks dusty saw a shark???

Dusty Payne sees a shark and leaves his heat early. That's interesting.

Shark!? $20 says it's BVB snorkeling with a fake fin, but either way, THANK YOU, OB.

P.S. Jordy ripped that shite.

That crab on Slater's board was hilarious. Slater thinking: "WTF is it with this weird place? Sharks and crabs and locals...oh my!"

A rally crab? DYIN! Maybe an interpretive dance where we crab dance and cheer would be cool. PS it was fun watching shit I'd never do on a surfboard :)

These judges are whacked. Kelly deserves to be winning, but these scores are bizarre.

My favorite comment on the webcast" "Do ya think the wave, um, will clean up later this afternoon?" [pause] "Uh, yeah probably. Yeah it will."

Methinks they've gotten lucky having weather/wind/swell like this all come together on the first morning. Let's hope it holds for 'em

I bet that street that begins with "P" is better. Lots better.

Matt Wilkinson thought the tsunami warning system tested each Tuesday at noon was a "shark alert." Priceless.

Slater is NEPTUNE! Even the freaking crabs pay him homage. Wilson and Wilkinson are shredding also. Tons of waves, but really the level of surfing is amazing on a day that's nothing special! Stoked to be checking it out.

Watch your gear, saw a guy try to grab a bike, will post his pic later,grey sweatshirt/blue collar, shaved head; & no buddy, it is not "your beach."

This is absolutely the OB that I know and love.

Parko gives up early because he can't make the paddle back out in the remaining time. Perillo is all alone, needs to catch anything decent in the next 3 minutes, can't catch any of the roiling piles of whitewater, and it's all he can do to paddle in place. Classic OB.

I love it... Parko just called it "hideous". Amazing! LOL!!! Go OB!

I don't get why they are still running it today? I kinda thought that they would just run the contest in the mornings and let the crabs have the afternoon.

I was dying. He called it the worst surf he's ever experienced during a heat.

And yeah, doesn't make a lot of sense that they're forcing some add'l heats this afternoon. Although the winds aren't forecasted to be favorable later in the week beyond tomorrow morn.

They just made a comment that all heats from here onwards are "by vote" of the competitors (i.e, the surfers can choose to run their heat or not). Interesting

lazy dane just voted no on his heat :(

Looks like the old girl had the riding crop out if not the full whips and chains (not big enough). Without a doubt the best day of surfing in the history of OB. Very good commentary on the webcast. Tomorrow could be even better.

Great coverage of the contest, and I gotta hand it to you who surf OB, it's not for this old codger.
