The latest shocking news from the world most perfect wave, 9x world champ Kelly Slater went down in the second round to young Basque countryman Aritz Aranburu. And this years tour points leader Joel Parkinson went out in the third round to the muscle bound hero Taylor Knox! Shock horror!! To be honest the conditions looked less than favorable, with no massive tubes to be had in the 4 – 5 foot range.
Chasing two massive scores kelly threw himself at all Teahupoo could offer. In any normal event it would have been a 10.
However the goofy footers are leading the charge, both CJ and Damo, Bobby Martinez and Mick Campbell are all still in contention.
Hopefully the surf will get better for the rest of the competition… now kelly is out I’m backing Tommy Whitaker all the way. GO TOMMY.
Peace and Harmonicas

The 27 year old “Cooly Kid” won his second event this year to make his winning streak read: 2/2. The surf was 6ft and the styling natural footer posted high scores in his final to beat off wildcard Adam Robertson.
It might not be Parko but its Micah Lester; He didn't win Bells this year but he could if he put his mind to it.
Congratulations Parko now on to Teahupoo!!!
