I'm really curious to see how they actually get to the finish line, the orientation of the finish mat and the eliminated racers makes it look like the racers will have to take a boat across the pond and then run through the trees to get to the finish.

If that were the case, then the team turned back would basically have a 0 chance of completing the RB and winning, as they would have to paddle their way back across the pond 2 more times.

Is it possible to reach the finish line without going across the pond??

Yes, there is a parking lot to the east of the finish line.  Problem, the racers would have to run past the mat and elimanted racers in order to turn around and come running in between them as is normally done.

It's a shaky theory...but WHAT IF the team is instructed to finish the RB, and when they get an okay from the judge, they are supposed to paddle board across the pond to the finish line. What if the team that is turned back has to go back and paddle board across the pond instead?

I don't know if this is possible at all, but it could be similar to what happens...Phil said its more complicated than just not doing a task. :duno:

Thanks and :bigwelcome to RFF!

Thanks! I have been around for awhile but never posted. Don't know why probably because i forgot my password but just remembered it.

Just an FYI, passwords can be reset or we can help with forgotten passwords. We're glad you remembered it.  :)

 :wel2

I know but I had also forgot my email password as well. But it all okay now!! :)

Maybe this pic will help, the green square area is not a solid path, plus would require teams to run through some person's property to get to, The yellow box is the finish mat, the red area is the parking lot.  The blue lines are possible paths across the pond, the brown lines possible paths through the trees and the little purple boxes are the waiting teams.

I am pretty certain the paddle board is a Naish Nalu SUP. 
http://www.naishsurfing.com/2012/nalu-116.html

The Naish shop is in Kailua, 15 miles south of the finish line. 

Naish Kailua – Full Naish line for rent/demo on the windward side
155 Hamakua Drive
Kailua, HI

Other people sell Naish boards, but the Naish shop is basically right there, so I am guessing they provided the boards.

Then perhaps a team skips the RB and paddleboards straight to the finish line. :duno:

Maybe that picture of  Art and JJ shows there confusion on what to do. What we are seeing is indecision and they accidentally paddle to the finish line.

What if the RB mess-up is the same type of mess-up from TAR 2's Sydney RB? That the RB has to be completed a certain way and someone misreads the clue on how it's done, still gets the clue and has to re-do the task after checking in at the mat.

yes

You're right about the run from that place to the mat.
That leads me to another question:  let's say Prophet hypotesis is right, how did the turned back team reach the PitStop the first time without crossing the pound?  You said that the green square area is not a solid path (you're been doing a helluva job in the research in this leg, so I trust you about this point), what other choices are in this zone they could use to appear at the finish line?

We've had 9 pages already talking about the finale even though it hasn't aired...


Ha! Ever noticed how much is written about NFL draft picks who are months away from even reporting to training camp?

Nine pages about teams, actually competing, on the final lap, is nothing.
I see! :lol3: True!

This ROADBLOCK was to follow the clues and discover Australian slang associated with vary actions of actors at different sites. There was an exact order. Either Oswald or Danny, Wil and Blake competed on this. Oswald or Danny had no problem, but both Wil and Blake stopped prematurely to get their partners. That required them when reaching the pit stop at the Museum of Contemporary Art to go back and redo everything after "surfie in the Dairy laks."

I watched the satellite view again and used the zoom to the top.  At the right side of the dock where they had to start paddeling, seems to be a line of trees or bushes - in some parts looks like a shore and in others just like a path -.  Maybe it's a crazy spec but, could this be the route they take to reach the brown lines, and then the Finish Line?  :duno:
