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.

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.

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 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 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! 

World Title 2015

The World Title Rankings

Madness to think we are only a few months away from crowning another Surfing World Champion! It has seriously been a funny old year. Snapper was absolutely ordinary at best, same as most of the other contests with flashes of perfection here & there. The question has risen again though, who is going to be world champ. Apparently not Freddy Pattachia who belted out a ten in his round one heat at Trestles the other morning came in & called it quits, what a way to go out! 

Mick Fanning Wins Portugal making a 3 horse race into Pipeline

Gabriel, Kelly, Mick into pipe.

What a crazy few events it has been. John John Florence has made everyone forget his average start to the year by pretty much demolishing everyone in his path since Trestles. Except maybe Jordy Smith, who has had him twice in 2 goes, once in the Trestles final & now in the Semis at Portugal. Because of the semi finish for John, his world title race is over, but as Mick has said about himself, his world title years have all started half way through the year before. Perhaps this is what John is doing?

Mick Fanning one of the greats!

SURF I MISSING - A Taylor Steele Film - Official Trailer

As i write this article, Pipeline Masters is on & perfect 8-10 foot & John John has only last heat destroyed Mick Fanning , comboing him with over 18 points, leaving MF with an even 5 points.

The year that was 2012 Happy New Year everyone!

Taj Burrow world champ 2013?

The year that was 2012 in surfing, alot of people including myself thought that it was going to be KS12, thankfully for
Aussies though, Joel Parkinson came through & took it to the 11 time world champ at Pipeline in Hawaii to take the line honors & get his maiden world title! A huge achievement that the whole country seems to be enjoying.

Mick Fanning takes the Teahupoo title

Got to say a big congratulations to Mick Fanning after he won his first Billabong Teahupoo pro title last week in Tahiti. In what is becoming a great, healthy rivalry, Mick surfed against Joel Parkinson in the final & took the honours for his second win of the year, Joel looked to have it sorted early, but Mick, with the determination & coolness under pressure he has displayed so many times before in his career was able to come back for the win.
