Blood Feud: The world vs. Silvana Lima!

Chas Smith

by Chas Smith

Silvana Lima has had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Sometimes things don’t go our way. Sometimes we go to sleep with gum in our mouths and then there’s gum in our hair when we get out of bed in the morning. Then we trip over the skateboard and by mistake drop our sweaters in the sink while the water is running and we can tell it will be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Or sometimes no one wants to sponsor us maybe because we are not model good looking and our boobs are too small so we have to breed French bulldogs and use their puppies to pay for plane tickets around the world so we can compete in professional surf contests but we get dropped into the Qualifying Series as opposed to the Championship Tour but even then when a competitor on the Championship Tour gets hurt and we should be given the injury replacement we aren’t and we know that it is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Yes, according to the World Surf League:

 Bronte Macauley will be surfing the Roxy Pro because CT star Lakey Peterson recently broke her ankle and withdrew from the first event. Macaulay has an elite level reputation to live up to: Her dad, Dave Macaulay, was on the Championship Tour in the 1980s and ’90s. She just missed the CT cutoff in 2015, so we expect her to make the most of this opportunity.

Bronte Macauley NOT Silvana Lima and what a bum run of luck. At least the fans are cheering for Silvana. They say:

Be fair wsl. Silvana should be there by ranking and hr surfing

My last comment on that matter….WSL what you are doing with Silvana is a crime.  No way i will watch or care for the women tour , and I run that tour back late 80 til middle 90 …Men tour of course    Shame on you people


As much as I would love to see Bronte surf, people below are correct in asking why the Women have double standards with the call up spot for the Womens World Tour? Why is it next WT qualifier for men and whoever you feel like for the Womens? I spent nine years on the World Tour and saw this happen to Chelsea Hedges also, who is a previous World Champ and event winner at Snapper. Yes improve the sport, but do it fairly! 

Such a shame that it’s not Sylvana, she owns this place!!!


Why is Silvana Lima not surfing in the Roxy Pro just a few short days away? I don’t know. Maybe just because some days are terrible, horrible, no good, very bad.
