Tradewind Surf Fantasy Surfer Picks Teahupoo

Billabong Pro Tahiti 2016 Final Day Highlights

The count down is on for Teahupoo & lets hope we see the guys pulling into some monsters! Straight into the picks & for my top tier I have gone with Julian Wilson & Gabriel Medina for obvious reasons, with John still out injured, I feel like either of these two could take it out. 

Tradewind Surf Fantasy Surfer Picks Jeffreys Bay

Day 4 Highlights - Corona Open J-Bay 2017

Getting into the second of the year now & looking forward to Jbay starting. To get straight into the picks for my top tier I have picked Julian Wilson, Im hoping this is his year with no John to worry about & him sitting on top of the ratings. My second pick is Gabriel Medina, there was so many to choose from but I feel like he is ready for another run at the title in this second half of the year! 

 

Tradewind Surf Fantasy Surfer Picks Keramas

Super Heat: Josh Kerr, Kelly Slater, John John Florence: Oakley Pro Bali

This one is exciting! Back to Keramas for the WSL event. Its hard because apart from the Mad Hueys contest there is not much to go on other than highlights from four years ago, which is actually worth a look on the video we have posted. For my picks, I have gone & given it a shake with the most exciting surfers I can find, the first one being Julian Wilson, it's looking like John is going to maybe have a bit of a World Title Gap year so to speak & I would love to see Julian bring a world title home to the Sunny Coast.

Tradewind Surf Fantasy Surfer Picks Rio

Final Day Highlights - Oi Rio Pro 2017

After a big anticlimax in Margarets, but everyones limbs in tact, it's time to put picks in for the Oi Rio Pro. Let's hope we get a winner in this contest. First up I have gone with Filipe Toledo & Griffin Colapinto, these two could easily win & I feel like the choices up in the top tier across the Fantasy population are going to be split fairly evenly, so have gone with a slightly different pick to maybe what I normally would. 

Tradewind Surf Fantasy Surfer Picks Margaret River

Day 4 Highlights - Drug Aware Margaret River Pro 2017

Two contests in & while I started with a hiss & a roar, it was short lived for me at Bells & I ended up in the middle of the field. For Margarets, I have thrown a bit of caution to the wind to see what might happen! My top tier picks are Julian Wilson & Owen Wright, both should do a good job, as they are experienced out there & plenty of swell is on the way.

Tradewind Surf Fantasy Surfer Picks Bells Beach

Men's Final Day Highlights | 2017 Rip Curl Pro - Bells Beach

Here we are ready for the Bells stop of the 2018 WSL tour! Congrats to Antone Nulley from Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast who took out the first round at Snapper. Probably should mention the other person from Coolum Beach, Julian Wilson who actually won the contest, was so good to see the Sunny Coasters smash it down there. 

Tradewind Surf Fantasy Surfer Picks Snapper

Opening Day Highlights - Quiksilver/Roxy Pro Gold Coast 2017

Back again for the Fantasy Tour of 2018. We had so much fun last year we thought why not do it all again! Il get straight into it with my picks for the top tier & I have gone with John John Florence & Julian Wilson, I think John is going number 3 this year & I think Julian could have a great year also after the birth of his first child. 

TWS Fantasy Surfer Pipe Picks

Billabong Pipe Masters 2016: Final Day Highlights | Vans Triple Crown of Surfing | VANS

So here we are at the end of the year! One contest to go until we organise the top prizes, who is going to get the boards ? I know one thing, it's not going to be me, but il give you the picks one last time for the final contest of they year, WSL Pipe Masters. On the top of the board, I think that most of us picked him every contest of the year, I have John John Florence & also Julian Wilson, it was a toss up between him & Owen but I would like to see Julian do a good job out there! 

WSL Tradewind Surf Portugal Fantasy Picks

Highlights: Day 4 in Portugal

The second last contest of the season & we are getting super close to giving away the boards! Coming into Portugal, I had a better run in France almost making the top 20 but not quite there yet. My picks this contest are a bit of a mixed bag, I have stayed around a certain crew all year & while up the top, John John Florence & Medina is consistent with my picks this year, the rest of the field maybe not so much. 

WSL Tradewind Surf France Fantasy Picks

Men's Quiksilver and Women's Roxy Pro France 2016 - Final Day Highlights

Already at the Quik Pro stop in France. Hard to say whether the waves are going to be good, but they are dealing with an ordinary run of waves leading up to this time but apparently plenty of sand at La Graviere, which is the usual contest site, so fingers crossed for some chunky french nuggets!
