Das Drama der Poll Awards 2014 nimmt kein Ende, denn nach dem peinlichen Auftritt von Noa Deane und Dion Agius während der Auszeichnung zum “Movie of the Year” gab es nun die große Entschuldigung.

Wer den Auftritt verpasst hatte sollte sich diesen erstmal ansehen:

Das “Fuck the WSL” von Noa Deane wäre wie folgt zu übersetzen:

Fuck the ASP

Das kann man sicherlich so sehen, aber man sollte sich vielleicht vorher überlegen wo genau man dazu Stellung nimmt. Aber die Stille nach seinem glorreichen Auftritt spricht Bände, denn es fühlten sich nicht nur die anwesenden ASP Verantwortlichen, sondern auch einige Surfer auf der Tour etwas peinlich berührt.
Nun ja und Dion Agius, the Rockstar himself, muss wohl erstmal ein paar Pillen oder Cocktails zu sich nehmen um so cool und lässig mit seiner Jogginghose auf der Bühne stehen zu können.

Doch nun gibt es die große Entschuldigung von Beiden auf Instagram:

I would like to apologise for my actions 2 nights ago at the surfer poll awards, it was incredibly stupid, what I said was not targeted at any of the surfers on tour and they are on there because they are the best surfers in the world I truly respect them and above all I'd like to apologise to the people of Hawaii and any kids watching. I'm meant to be a role model in surfing and my actions on the night were not appropriate and that was not the time or place to voice that opinion. My only goal was to raise the point of surfing not becoming a corporate sport like football but I can see and acknowledge how I came across and I am sorry…. I'm truly humbled to receive the AI award someone who I looked up to as a kid and loved his surfing, and can't believe that I over shadowed the honour of with my actions later in the evening. Apologies to any one I have offended.

Ok, So I’ve been approached to do a few interviews regarding my actions at the Surfer Poll awards however I feel that this is the best avenue to apologise and explain myself… Firstly I want to make clear that no fucking way do i condone the misuse of prescription pills and I completely understand it is a huge problem for many people and not a laughing matter. I have suffered from anxiety in the past and have a huge fear of public speaking which has lead me to have one too many Mai Tais to help settle my nerves. I truly want to apologise for anyone that I may have offended that's super lame. Ps. @kellyslater is an absolute fucking boss and took the time to chat to me for 20 minutes backstage while I gushed at how much we all look up to, and respect him and what he has achieved in his career and done for the art of surfing.

Wir freuen uns ja, dass endlich mal wieder ein wenig Schwung in die ASP Diskussion kommt, nachdem wir uns auch regelmäßig wundern müssen, ob die neue Vermarktung und Übertragung der World Tour wirklich die richtige Richtung ist.
