Now that we're back on GMT it really feels like winter; 5:45PM and it's already been dark for nearly an hour. So here are some sick waves to drool over from the first round of the WLT event that has just kicked off in the Maldives. How perfect are those waves - most definitely a case of wish I was there!
Sam Bleakley and Ben Skinner are both through to round 2, which starts at 8AM tomorrow. Ben's drawn Bonga Perkins and Sam has Eduardo Bage; I don't think there's such a thing as an easy heat in this contest...Duane DeSoto's out already. Looks like the Maldives are GMT+5 so that's 3AM here; Sam's in heat 2 and Ben's in heat 4 so doubt I'll be watching live but fingers crossed for both of them.
