All right folks, we don't call this column the "Surfing Soap Box" for nothing, so let's talk a little surfing for a change. I'll be sure to get back to current issues ? such as parking, water quality and open space just to name a few ? in Laguna Beach next week.
The "WCT" ? otherwise known as the Association of Surfing Professionals World Championship Tour, or commonly referred to as "the dream tour" ? has begun on the epic stretch of beach in Queensland, Australia.
As the first stop on the 12-stop surfing tour, every one of the top 44 surfers in the world competing in this event wants to start their new season with a bang. As this event heads into round 4 in three-to-four foot waves, this event has already seen its fair share of surfing upsets.
