The Fantasy Wash-Up: Men's Trestles WSL Fantasy

So,  Flores eh?  I didn’t see that coming,  did I?  The beauty of the WSL Fantasy Surfing is that each new contest provides a fresh start,  a new opportunity,  hell,  a shot at redemption.  Regardless of how your team went at Tahiti,  there’s plenty to get excited about;  Trestles offers the elite tour surfers the closest possible conditions to a surfers’  playground and we’re about to see some top-shelf,  high performance surfing take place.  Let’s get picking… I won’t go over my 3 rules of team selection in detail again,  ...
