In a controversial interview, South African Dawid Mocke was named favorite for today's US Surfski Championships being held in San Francisco Bay, California.

Local knowledge to play no part

Local pundit Rocket J Squirrel was asked (off camera) whether the reason for predicting only third place for Matt Bouman was due to Bouman's lack of local knowledge.  (Both Mocke and Sean Rice have paddled in San Francisco relatively extensively.)  

"Naw," was the reply as the expert wondered off, clearly having lost interest in the race and the conversation.

Aussie film-maker and GoPro ambassador Rambo filmed the interview...
