A full day of hot cold action!
Professional surfing has been left in tatters, its Waterloo the brave town of Lennox Head, Australia where locals rose as one and scratched and clawed and issued multiple swears, sending the World Surf League torn and bloodied back to Santa Monica, maybe all the way to the gates of hell.
A victory for the ages but maybe pyrrhic? Maybe we cheer today but weep tomorrow when their is no more professional surfing to entertain us?
Well don’t worry! The world’s greatest snowboarder Travis Rice has envisioned a whole new tour, the first stop is Jackson Hole, Wyoming and day one has received the green light.
It’s all simple to understand, with no overlapping heats or priority squabbles.
24 (16 men, 8 women) of the very best, hand-selected, snowboarders will hit the course, blending big mountain riding with enhanced features, today at 9:30 mountain time. Three heats of eight (8 men, 8 women, 8 men, repeat). The top 12 will advance to day 2, which will occur sometime between now and Feb. 9.
Judges will be looking at creativity, difficulty, general coolness, etc. All things we surfers will be able to comprehend easily and snarkily weigh in on like we know.
We are very good at appropriation.
