WSL Does Self-Deprecating Humour Surprisingly Well!

Judges deliberating. Surfing as a poor spectator sport thanks to downtime between sets. The numbers on the back of jerseys. Separating Hawaii and the US. The WSL ain’t short on things for their critics to, uh, criticise.

And you know the best way to handle criticism? Embrace! Tell the people to spear their hate into your love! Remember that scene in 8 Mile where Eminem calls himself out in the rap battle final, and leaves that pesky Papa Doc nothing to insult him about, thus causing him to choke, and leaving Rabbit to win the acceptance of his peers? The WSL just did the very same!

WSL Beach Break is a new series that Stab adores. Highlights include the episode in which Seabass fields a question from Rosie Hodge about the jersey number he chose, and the episode about Adriano, post-title win.
