First up, if you got the email about the Portugal contest & it had the France picks in there, very sorry about that! Have a new system which i'm learning & whilst it is going to be better in the long run I am not the most tech savvy user haha! Now, on to the picks, the first tier I have Julian Wilson, what a win in France & putting him back in the conversation, our last Aussie hope for 2018. My second pick is Gabriel Medina if it gets solid & perfect in Portugal expect Gabby to be getting spat out of a few when it matters.
I normally come out this time of year & say Happy New Year to everyone & what a great life it is & how happy we are with everything blah blah blah. This year i still think all of those things. Tradewind Surf has had a few troubles & at the risk of sounding cliche at this time of year again, we have come through them & are charging along again, getting you all your surfboards & accessories with ease!
I have to say that it was a breath of fresh air to watch Jeremy Flores calmly dismantle surf journalist Ben Mondy in a post heat interview at the Cascais Billabong Pro last week. After a heat win in what has been a bit of an average year for the European surf star he spoke to post heat interviewer , Ben Mondy who had recently been writing some negative things about Flores.
