Yadin Nicol Tells His Side

“I just wish people would kind of get off this subject. It’s over. His wave was incredible, and the performance he put in on all year was insane so I can’t take anything away from what he did in that heat and what he’s done all year. ” – Yadin Nicol

What do we think? Mick’s wave well deserved the score he got – going so deep and riding off the snowball and coming out! Want to see it again then go to Mick Fanning vs. Yadin Nicol at Pipeline

Kelly Slater Wins Pipeline Billabong Pro

“It was a strange Final. John John and I both waited for a while and neither of us really got a score until late in the match. I knew it was going to be a sprint and it was probably a little advantageous not to have priority in the Final as I was able to go for a lot of waves instead of wait for those that took a while to eventuate.

The crowd today is the biggest I have ever seen at Pipe. It’s unbelievable. I woke up in the dark and my friend Ross Williams was at my house saying he couldn’t even get his bike on the road to ride over here. We’re so excited to be here at Pipe, especially when the waves are good. All the people on the beach and online and watching on television make it that much more exciting.”

Last year, someone asked me what excited me in the end years of my career and I said I would like to surf a Final at Pipe against so that’s pretty special today. To win is even better. I want to surf against the best surfers at the best waves – that’s why I’m on tour. I was obviously emotional today, especially after Mick clinched the title in the Quarters. I don’t know what happens for me in 2014 but I think that has pissed me off just enough to come back.

Today was one of the most special days in my life. It’s a day I have dreamed about since I was a little kid – big, perfect, West-angled Pipeline and a showdown at the Pipe Masters. If I had stepped away from the sport five years ago, I wouldn’t have had today. I want more days like this so I’m definitely back next year.” – Kelly Slater

“This is my second Triple Crown but it feels pretty special. The first year, I wasn’t really thinking about it. I was young and just having fun. This year, I came into the Triple Crown wanting to win it, but I honestly didn’t think I had a chance until we got to the final day at Pipe. This result has me motivated for next year. It’s eating my inside how close I was, but I’m still stoked.” – John John Florence

Mick Fanning Crowned 2013 World Champion

From Bobby Martinez
bobby-martinez

“It wasn’t easy. If you want to win a world title, you have to put it all on the line. I basically got flogged for 28 minutes of that heat before that gem came through. I heard from all the boys whistling on the beach and I knew it was going to be a good one when it came in. I got a roll in off of second reef and it set up for a really good section on first reef. Came through at the right time and that was definitely a magic moment for me.”

The world title is something that takes a whole year, but sometimes it can feel like it boils down to the final day and the final heats.I’m sure I gave my wife Karissa and my mum enough stress today to last a lifetime. I was never worried myself now that I think of it. I knew what I needed to do and if the opportunity came, I knew I could do it. That opportunity came in both heats today. It’s an incredible feeling. I’ve been having fun all year and to clinch on a day like this at Pipeline makes it that much more special.” – Mick Fanning

“I’m excited for Mick – it was an exciting finish. Mick has been focused all year. It’s hard for me to pinpoint exactly where my year didn’t stack up. I got hurt in Tahiti and probably should have rehabbed more before Trestles. I didn’t surf very well through Europe. A world title is a yearlong thing. It was a great year for surfing and I’m excited we get to wrap up in great waves at Pipeline.” – Kelly Slater

Canon 7D Mark II

We have received information (hear say) that Canon will not be releasing the Canon 7D Mark II. Times are tough for the middle class photographer (prosumer) – your either stuck with a $6,800 body or something that really doesn’t get the job done.
