Laurie Towner likes the big stuff. But not when he’s being given an intimate tour of the Chopes reef.
Loz’s Air Tahiti Nui VonZipper Trials campaign ended in the quarter finals at Chopes yesterday. He and Anthony Walsh tied for equal fifth, leaving the local Tahitians to take the top four places.
During his round 3 heat, Loz posted scores solid enough to advance him into the next round, but after pulling into this one he head butted the reef and took a chunk out of the area just above his eye.
The oily face of this one may look deceivingly gentle, but Chopes is a temperamental mistress, and she shall chew you up and spit you out quicker than you can whisper her name. – Elliot Struck
