Right this second, JJF, Dusty, and Wiggoly are kicking off the third stop of the WSL Championship Tour. Mick likely hasn’t broken his early-morning routine since Bells, JJF hopefully hasn’t forgotten his warmup, Dusty is surely studying two-year-old heat-recaps form his win on the Q, and Jay Davies is still revved up from his trial win. The surf isn’t quite the XL size that it was hyped-up to be, but screw it! There’s finally some swell for an event, and that’s a beautiful turn in the right direction.
But, here’s the kicker…the boys aren’t getting lost in Margies lineup. That lovely little square slab across the channel is doing its thing. That’s right, the Box will host the opening heats of the event. Whatta treat! Watch it live, right here.
