Quite impressive, considering that for most of the WSL athletes the quota place would be decided at the WSL or even the 2020 Surfing Games for the small handful that fail. It however may make it harder for athletes to grab the continental quota (they must finish in the top 30).

Has there ever been an event where :NZL doesn’t haka? Today’s was just sad, though generally the haka is performed shirts/jerseys on, so they did add a unique Surfing flavor I guess.

What is the relationship of this event -which I have never heard of - to the World Surfing Tour -where all the best surfers compete ?

 

All the best surfers are non European but Europe ( with the French worst )  think they have a God given right to run everything

this is the actual world championships, with all the best surfers in the world (since we have WSL and non-WSL specialists)...

 

the WSL is just a professional elite circuit with the best athletes from basically only the "surfing Nations"...they just established that league because they wanted to take advantage of the financial aspects and build a place where the best among the best were more easily recognizable by the fans...

 

it's like the UFC and the other MMA organizations...the first is supposed to have the best fighters, but that's not always nor necessarily true...they're just the reachest, better organized and more "media friendly" crew, rather than the cradle of the best specialists...

I doubt that an American or Australian surfing aficionado  ( ie from the best surfing countries and cultures ) would agree with your analysis
