David on Gabriel:

Gabe surfed every single morning for 2 hours before the US Open. He’d freesurf midday, and then he’d wax his 30 minute heat. He, undoubtedly, has natural ability but he also has a tremendous work ethic. Ironically, he attributed his stamina to diet of “a lot of milk and tortilla”. As Gabe develops more competitive savvy and perhaps a level of fitness akin to Slater or Fanning, he’ll likely find a new gear. Gabe will not only raise the talent level of professional surfing, but also the dedication level. Bravo, Gabriel! Can’t wait.

    David. Your video of Dane at the Open is a disaster. I’ve never seen a filmer so confused with panning, or basic camera work in general. And the shots of Dane’s girl are disrespectful. Full-blown amateur hour in HB…
