Bill Part V - A King Is Born

This is by far the most excellent picture I had the pleasure of viewing from the Hurricane Bill swell, and maybe in all of 2009. It truly doesn't get any better than this. I pronounce this gentleman as:

The King of Bill! All hail the king!

The photo was captured by Joey Wilson and first sent in by reader Robert (although many others sent in the same, Robert was the first).

Webbed gloves didn't seem to help him...

Looks like a major short-john wedgie too...

I might have had more than a few shots to contribute from "Bill". Especially when you consider all the mayhem that occurred. However, I was too busy surfing to shoot much.

Webbed Gloves - Check

Speedo - Check

Flailing in the surf - Check

I think he has all the bases covered.

Seems to be a lot of Butt Surfing and Head on this blog lately. Just not sure I'm down with that!

Doesn't anyone wear tight pants anymore?

Same old east coast whine: Kelly, Kelly, KELLY!!!!!
Yes, he's a great surfer, but don't you guys get it--the whole surf "competition" nonsense is just a big popularity contest controlled by the Surf Crap Industry to sell you stuff you don't need.
The biggest tragedy in Surf Marketing has been Slater going bald early in life and not being "viable" to that all important Youth Market!
