Is he the new surfing Messiah? (Not for me but he's got good stuff to say).
We never know when Gary Busey is talking seriously or when he's making fun of us all. This time, two videos captured by Joshua Pomer promise to get the viral stamp, as Busey reveals what surfing has done for his life.
"The surfing experience I had changed my life in many ways. No matter what I've been through. The addictions I had - womanizing, stupidity, cocaine... But I got good news. I've found it. One of the ways was surfing", says Gary Busey....
Back in early June I had the chance to catch big wave adrenaline junky Kohl Christiansen as he was jetting off to Peru to some warning level swell. Unfortunately the spot in Pichilemu, Chile – after much anticipation, The Quiksilver Ceremonial Chile was unable to run as scheduled on Tuesday, June 4th on the beaches at Punta de Lobos, Chile. The forecast had originally projected a 15-foot swell, but the surf ultimately did not reach the necessary heights for the BIGWAVEWORLDTOUR.COM. Ah the life of men who ride mountains. But, remember the swells in May for Fiji and Tahiti and Hawaii? Well, guess who was on it?
Here you see John John Florence freesurfing at Keramas during the Oakley Pro Bali that wrapped up last week.
According to John Wiley from Deltoid Productions who put the clip together, "John John spent more time in the water than any other pro throughout the event. He was a standout each morning during the pre-event warm up, and was regularly spotted at various other breaks all over the island."
Need we say any more?
“There were a few bad years there before it got better for me—like they say, it’s got to get bad before it gets good. I actually broke my back in 2011 and that sidelined me for a while when I was rehabbing it. I didn’t want to make a big deal about it, so I didn’t really talk about the injury a lot. It actually happened out at Pipe. I pulled into one and the foam ball pushed me toward the beach and then the wave literally broke on my back. The lip flared out as it broke and really compressed and tweaked my back. I came in knowing something was wrong, and then went to the hospital where they took X-rays and said that I had cracked one of my vertebrae. I was on pain pills when the doctor came in and told me that I had broken my back and I was tripping because I didn’t think it hurt that bad. It was pretty heavy to hear. From there I spent some time rehabbing and trying to get my confidence back.”
Joel Parkinson (AUS), 32, has won the inaugural Oakley Pro Bali over Michel Bourez (PYF), 27, via an impressive come-from-behind effort in four-to-six foot (2 metre) waves at the iconic Balinese righthander of Keramas.
Stop No. 5 of 10 on the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), the Oakley Pro Bali hosted a historic high-performance showdown including perfect heats and next level progression from the world’s best surfers, culminating with Parkinson’s hard-fought victory over Bourez in the Final.
