Chopes waiting period extended for the first time ever

I got a text message the night before last at 4 in the a.m.

‘Oh god, not her again’ I thought.

But no, it was actually Timo letting me know that Jeremy had just beaten Mr Sl8er and is thru the quarter finals. Pretty amazing stuff from the recently turned 19 year old, what?

After the pumping swell that they had for the trials, the surf’s been pretty lacklustre by Chopes standards, prompting conspiracy theorists to suggest it’s the fault of SE’s Quirin Rohleder and Timo, who are both in Tahiti currently. I’m not sure myself.

Let’s just hope it picks up a bit (not too much…) late next week, when I join Timo in Tahiti’s Tuamotu islands for the O’Neill Mission 2007. Ra-ther!
