This week in surf has been, uh, eventful. The WSL is restructuring. Kelly Slater’s Wavepool is going left, right and has been modified for the better. Dane dropped a new clip. Dane had twin girls. Oh, how we missed Dane! There’s a contest going on down at Lowers, but it’s flat, and the CTers are currently having a pool day with Kelly in Lemoore. Hurricane-esque winds blew through Santa Barbara. There was a tragic death in Barbados. We made outrageous claims about the murderous nature of Filipe Toledo in waist-high waves. And, we’re pretty sure our dog is either dead or found a new owner, who feeds him caviar and gave him a diamond collar. It’s all happening. Like, right now. And, as is tradition, you all had a few things to say about it. 

Oh, by the way, this is the 100th installment of COTW! Go buy yourselves the world’s smallest trophy.
