Back on topic. This is the WORST coverage of KOTA yet. How pathetic there is no live feed or video on demand. Red Bull sucks ass big time. Why sponsor an event and not even televise it?

I agree it is a massive let down and bad look not to have the live stream. The Dirty Habits effort got the sound turned off due to copyright too :-o

Maybe didn't sell enough cans - 7 billion a year..... to cover the costs :-) I have always been supportive of how they give opportunity to action athletes to work and earn cash in exchange for marketing the drinks. I still have respect for Red Bull but its gone down a rung or 2 on the ladder unfortunately because IMO it is unfair to advertise a live stream and then pull out of doing it at the most important time.

Just got back from a surf and they are setting up for the Snapper ASP right now that is in a few weeks - check that stream - will be sick!

Bit pointless isn't it... so far away you can barely tell when they're jumping let alone who and what they're doing.

Yea, that stream is too frustrating to watch. Looking forward to hearing the results and them hopefully seeing some good highlight videos of what happened.
