@grantellis1 took this shot of me in 2003 during the Quiksilver Masters event at Makaha in Hawaii. I was riding a Super Twin, 6’4″, 191/2″ wide & 25/8″ thick. We had big surf for the first day of the event but then it settled down to around 3-4′ for the remainder of the event. It was man on man with no priority system. I had a semi final where I could not put a foot wrong. But the final was a disaster, I got flogged. @rabbitbartholomew got the best wave of the first exchange & that set the tone for the whole final. The surf was inconsistent & no matter what I tried I failed to claw back his lead. Rabbbit was a master of no priority mam on man strategy. Bugs was also ahead of the curve realising the importance of coaching. My memory may be off ? But I think he relied on help & coaching advice from Mike Parsons & Dave Parmenter during the event ? @mikeparsons1 @quiksilver @cidoubleyou @mikereilly1 @fuzzy66 @sammygosling @samueltgriffiths @wadelamond @benny_big @mikypicon @limowall @yeahbranchy @anothery @empireave @euroglass @bernie_baker1 @boardriderscapbreton @boardriderscoolangatta @boardriderstorquay @boardridersericeira #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardscolordesigns #markrichardssprays #mrtwinfin #twinfinsrule #twinfinsforever #twinfinfever #twinfinfevercatchit #mrsupertwin #mrsupertwinmodel #quiksilvermasters #makaha #quiksilver #quiksilverhawaiiofficial
