    The final’s result is pretty questionable. Taj’s 9,43 score wasn’t unanimous among the judges. One of them gave 8,8 for that wave, and that’s what I would give too.
    Weird…

    I agree with u Jack. That 9.43 was definitely overscored ! Lets see if the ASP will send a note, like they did about Adriano x Owen in Brazil…
