Smoke = fire.
Professional surfing, at the very highest level, has decided that it is best, most prudent, to take an entire month off between events in the middle of the season. The Margaret River Pro, as you may recall, wrapped its business on April 28. The Surf Ranch Pro will not kick off until May 29. A bizarre and needless long break which leaves fans of professional surfing adrift and otherwise troubled.
To what should attention be paid?
Oh certainly we have the NBA playoffs, dog day baseball, Miami’s F1 and the absolute best of all AFL (Go Pies) but, at the unfortunate end, we are fans of professional surfing and need storylines that World Surf League Chief of Executives Erik Logan can’t/won’t provide.
He’s a real bummer.
Well, Gisele Bündchen gracing the Met Gala solo can be applauded. The Brazilian supermodel, of course, attended the world’s most important fashion event, this year honoring Karl Lagerfeld whom The New York Times describes as “a firehose of offense.”
Gorgeously borrowing BeachGrit’s other tagline.
Hours ago, anyhow, Bündchen strutted in front of the camera wearing vintage Chanel. A feathered piece from 2007, wedding-style, right when she was dating Kelly Slater.
Without ex-husband Tom Brady nor the dashing jiu-jitsu instructor she has been allegedly seeing.
A certain sign.
Slater, you may know, attended the Met Gala in 2015 and looked quite sharp in a classic tuxedo.
You must see the significance.
Must recognize this all as a sign.
27 days and counting to the Surf Ranch Pro.
26 days and counting tomorrow.
Light a candle in the meantime.
