It’s not a proper duct tape. Short story is that the WSL wanted to just run a single event for their title this year, Tudor and lots of others called them out on it. They backtracked and have run a further two events alongside existing shortboard events ( which is why they haven’t been at world class logging waves - Manly & Huntingdon )Been watching the replays of the female rounds with my girls yesterday, trying to show them women do cool stuff too. Pretty gnarly so close to the jetty.
Was the Duct Tape always this contest-like? I thought it was more of a anything goes type thing, with strict requirements on the equipment being traditional and whatnot
