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! 

WSL Tradewind Surf Trestles Fantasy Surf Picks

Highlights: Trestles Finals Day 2016

Fun waves at Trestles makes for easy Fantasy picks right ? I doubt it, but anyway, here goes! Tahiti was a little bit kinder to me, but not overly. At the top of the table I have gone with John John Florence for a pick & also Julian Wilson, as I have left him out in recent contests, but after Tahiti, I am ready to back him again & he rips at Trestles, but, the problem is, so does everyone!

Billabong Pro Tahiti 2016 Final Day Highlights

On the back end of the season now & we have, what looks like there could be a few waves for the Teahupoo contest. I have changed up my approach this contest to hit & hope! Except for the top end, John John Florence & Owen Wright are my two top guys, through the middle check out Ace, he has won here in the past & is a Goofy foot. Medina is the same deal & Flores can make problems for the top guys at Chopes! 

Fantasy Surfer Picks Tradewind Surf J Bay

Mick Fanning's Road to the Final - J Bay 2016 Highlights

We have crossed the half way mark in our Fantasy Surfer contest & we would like to say thanks for everyone who has been putting there picks in each contest & having some fun with us! 

For J Bay, I am sitting in 72nd & have put my picks in already. I have gone with Jordy Smith at J Bay, surely this is a no brainer ? It seems this year though, expect the unexpected. After a bad result last contest look for John John to step it up at J Bay & the same deal with Mick, he loves J Bay & South Africa. 

Tradewind Surf WSL Fantasy Picks Fiji

Highlights: Fiji Pro's Perfect Day

Here we are again, contest number 5 & bogey Brazil out of the way. Congratulations to Adriano Desouza on a much deserved win on his home turf! Once again, I was not able to pick my nose. Congratulations to everyone who did well & continues to do so, we are nearly half way to giving the boards away!

This contest, if your game to listen, I think Owen Wright is going to go a long way in Fiji, John John Florence also. Get Kelly in there also & don't forget Gabriel Medina who has ruled Fiji in recent years also.

2016 Oi Rio Pro: Semifinals, Heat 1 Video

This is probably the hardest contest for me to have a crack at picking, so expect me to be down the bottom again. Jordy Smith has won this event before so expect him to be up there after a really big win at Bells. Il sound like a broken record but John John Florence is the man of the moment & has to be in the team! 

Tradewind Surf WSL Fantasy Surfer picks for Bells

Highlights: Pressure Is On at Bells Beach

Il start by saying John looked dangerous at Margarets, put him in your team! But you didn't need me to tell you that. I am trying to work out whether how John surfed at Margarets is going to translate at Bells, the easy money would be to say that it is going to. 

Tradewind Surf WSL Fantasy Surfer picks for Margarets

Highlights: Upsets and Impressive Performances at Margarets Day 1

In one fell swoop, or should I say one swell swoop, Snapper is done & we are already thinking about Margaret River in a weeks time! But first, congratulations to "Telmo's Picks" who convincingly took down the other 100 Fantasy Surfer competitors & won the Snapper comp in the Tradewind Surf Fantasy League. His prize of a Famous pack is on the way!
