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.
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!
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.
