WSL Water Patrol vs Unauthorized Drone At Jaws
While the world’s most dangerous surf event transpired, there was a smaller bird to fry.
“No drone zone.” At WSL sanctioned events you’ll find these signs stuck in the dirt, sand, stapled to trees, trampled underfoot, everywhere. And, maybe from our unauthorized eye-in-the-sky bootlegging of Kelly Wonka’s Wave Factory, the WSL’s battle against rogue drones is as serious as your life. So while Jaws ran, and Rory Parker sat on a boat in the channel, he sent a series of clips from his wife’s cellphone (Rory lives in 1976 and refuses to give into such frivilous modern conveniences) featuring a few spills and the water patrols’ continuous attempts to defeat a small hovering blackbird. The fact that this was a priority while the 2017’s most dangerous surf contest was taking place is laughable. Without further ado, bring in the chopper!
