where is christian fletcher, on this?
This is serious – All of these men were champions. Though possibly not on the day I met them.
– and where to start .
Damien Hardman. ASP No 1 – 87/88 & 1991.
Warriewood is a Sydney beach a mile north of Narrabeen and a hundred yards inshore from an very large offshore ocean sewerage outlet / outflow. A grand favour to the voters from some vengeful government whose ministers have long since succumbed to immense wealth and impoverished health.
Dooma is a Warriewood man, Dooma . Damien is Dooma.
Christian Fletcher had some unkind things to say about Dooma during one of the Hawaiian seasons. He reckoned our man didn’t deserve a world title until he jumped some air at 25′ Pipe. This was just a little chest-pumping that’s all. He’s an American (is) Christian and he backs himself in every race he runs.
Here’s a pic* of CF and the late A.Irons tuning into some finger food. This could be one of professional surfing’s seminal images except that Fletch has the wrong two fingers giving a bird and AI – rock him – has taken the gesture even further.
This takes style.
– and while we are at it, have a closer look at the Fletcher dead-eye here. Picture yeself at the end of that vivid gesture of homicidal intent.
Back to Dooma.
No .. bugger Dooma, he’s too bland
I’m for promoting this image. Surfers were always meant to be ungovernable.
