Small waves for a four man heat creates friction. Apply friction to a subjective judging platform and that, dear readers, is a recipe for disaster — or at least a bout of hostile sign language. The Oakley Lowers Pro started today in waves that looked vaguely more appealing than the creamed corn served at Golden Corral buffets nationwide. Ian Crane lost a heat that could’ve gone either way and the short video above depicts how exactly that made him feel.
Stay tuned for more meltdown updates and Golden Corral comparisons as the contest continues. It is only our duty as SURFING.
