The Dust Up
Manufacturer's Cup Update
Show Notes

In this episode we discuss the Rip Curl Bells Beach Pro, Margaret River Pro and the Surf Ranch Pro.

After a classic intro from Bodhi, we chat about some behind the scenes adventures during the Bells competition.  Unfortunately, the waves didn't turn up but that doesn't mean there wasn't a lot to talk about. (Time 0:1:30)

The next stop on tour was the West Australia Margaret River Pro and the tour finally got some quality waves.  Much to Christian disgust, they didn't take the competition to the box but it was great to see some great performances from the world's best surfers. (Time 1:32:00)

Lastly, we extract the good parts from the Surf Ranch Pro amid all the controversy from the Brazillians.  There were definitely improvements with the pool competition this year but is it sustainable ? (Time 2:16:00)

During our recaps we discuss 4 channels, surfboard glassing and weight, surfboards trends we have noticed as well as the all important Manufacturer's Cup results.
