2021 Wrap-up

As a very stop-start year finally comes to end, we look forward to a (hopefully) full calendar of CT events in 2022. A massive congratulations go out to Crow (Kade), who topped the charts for 2021 and scooped a $250 Surfstitch voucher and a digital subscription to Surfing Life for his efforts; enjoy mate!

Rottnest Congratulations Gabe must be stinging from the fact that the WSL have introduced this whole finals series thing at Trestles this year. At this point, he's all-but-guaranteed a 1st place ranking at the end of the (reduced) regular season, which would otherwise be enough for the trophy. Meanwhile, Sally Fitz was all 'American smiles*' as she took out her first event since Rio 2019 and set herself up for a confident Olympics berth. Read more

Margies Congratulations Filipe earned his first win since Rio 2019 and cemented his spot in the current top 5. Tatiana scored her 2nd CT victory (matching Samantha Cornish*) and raced to second place in the rankings. Meanwhile, the big news was FSS champ Crow, who also scored his second victory and raced to 2nd on the leaderboard. What was particularly impressive was that he did it... Read more

Margaret River Fantasy Preview

Conditions The WSL have plenty of venue guides for Margies, or Ben Mondy overviews, as well as detailed break breakdowns, and Kelly Slater’s ‘Vision’ series providing his insights into Main Break, the Box and North Point (North Point has been confirmed as being off the table this year). Honestly through, this event is harder to pin down in regards to conditions than most as there are four three... Read more

Narrabeen Classic Fantasy Preview

I don't know about all of you, but I'm low-key psyched for Narrabeen. I know how consistent it is and I've surfed it a bunch, so I'm keen to see the pros amongst it. We've all blown the cobwebs off our fantasy teams (read: I kind of sucked at Newcastle) and now it's time to get ready for a big result (I'll probably suck again). Let's get started.

Newcastle Cup Fantasy Winners

While John and Jack managed to rob a few teams of the fantasy glory they desired, but a few shrewd players managed to grind out a win at the first leg of the 4-part Aussie leg. Join me now in begrudgingly celebrating their victories... Fab Fab - 37660 pts Fab had all 4 semi-finalists, as well as quarter-finalist Conner. ... Read more

Newcastle Fantasy Preview

It's the season re-launch, with surf fans tempering their expectations with the pragmatic modesty that only the WSL can inspire. We've got a new-ish venue to look at and fantasy team to pick, so let's quit prologuing and start crunching the numbers. Conditions Newcastle offers more breaks than Kelly's injury schedule, so I'm just going to let local hopeful Ryan Callinan break it down for you... Read more

The Tour 2.0

After a welcome start, followed by several set-backs and some on-brand radio silence, the WSL has found a new path forward in 2021. Pipe/Maui seem like an entire season ago, but it's worth remembering that the WSL had a brief-but-competent return to the professional sports sphere with their season openers in Hawaii 3 months ago. Sure, there were some lowlights, such as a shark attack at Maui minutes before the finals day, wildcard Miguel Tudela's... Read more
