Transworld Surf Magazine‘s Chris Cote was M.I.A. during the celebration party for Rip Curl Pro Search winners and 2010 ASP World Champions Stephanie Gilmore and Kelly Slater.
As a result, his all-important interview duties were passed to the backbenchers, many of whom, we suspect, might have consumed an adult beverage or two before taking the microphone. We’ll let you determine that one.
Sadly, none could fill the void left by Cote, but there were some pretty entertaining questions…and answers.
But we’re still wondering why Mick Fanning licked Kelly Slater’s head.
Maybe you know? Also, tell us who you think will make a smooth transition into the broadcast booth when they’re all done.
