VIDEO: The Interview that got Bobby Martinez tossed from the Quiksilver Pro NY

Words By – Chris Nomad

As many of you heard watching the live feed from the Quiksilver Pro NY today, Bobby Martinez was thrown out of the event just before his heat against Kelly Slater in Round #3.

Bobby has been the center of controversy recently with his public comments in regards to the caliber of surfing on tour, opinions about wave quality in some events and desire to retire from competitive surfing after this season.

Here is the video from the feed today, watch into the 5 minute mark to find the clip with Bobby’s controversial interview:

No matter how things play out with Bobby and the ASP, he is a pleasure to watch in events and brings much needed character to competitive surfing, at least by myself, he will be missed.

Update: Bobby Martinez was disqualified for the rest of the year by the ASP

Check out the official ASP’s response here:

    Here’s a link to Bobby’s latest response.  I can’t believe he actually thinks Quik and ASP got together to get rid of him so Kelly Slater wouldn’t get out of competitions early, LOL!  So ridiculously entertaining…:

    Maybe Bobby is right, maybe Quik and ASA did get together to get rid of him so Kelly Slater wouldn’t etc etc..  What if surfings’ fixed like wrestling or who the hell cares!? OMG I can’t believe what Bobby’s saying!! Really, you cant believe it? I can, and you know what, it doesn’t bother me. Why? Because Bobby Martinez is just some dude, and I don’t  lead my life by what this or any other Bobby Martinezs says.
