Top Picks - 2015 Men's CT Bells Beach

Here we are, just two weeks from the 2015 Bells Beach CT and the Men's Heat Draw has dropped! Maximizing your R1 Bye potential will give you a huge edge in CT #2 this year.  Those mind-blowing upsets at the Gold Coast stirred the rankings beautifully for drafting solid quality at Bells.  Like fish in a barrel - don't you just love CT #2? [table id=121 /] Tier A Thanks to standings after one competition, we have guys like Miguel Pupo, Wiggolly Dantas, and Bede Durbidge in Tier A (no... Read more

Fantasy Projections - Bells Beach Men's and Women's CT 2015

If you're trying to find an edge for Bells Beach in WSL Fantasy Surfing, look no further.  Here are our Projected Average Heat Scores (PAHS), Projected Fantasy Points (PFP) and past QSFW Power Scores for each surfer in the Men's and Women's CT.  Below, you'll find who we think is poised for a big payoff.  Keep in mind, our projection system - though weighted - still takes into account the young Brazilians' lack of tour experience.  We'll outline whether or not to take a gamble, and how to use our...

Gold Jerseys - F. Toledo and C. Moore

Congratulations are in order for Filipe Toledo on his first SA, FA and W at the CT level.  What a monstrous event for him and Brazil, who made up 3/4 of the SF contenders.  We knew Brazil would be good, but this good?  The F performance that Toledo put on was a statement.  2014 was Medina's year, and 2015 is Brazil's year, maybe even Filipe's - so far he's the world's number one. Carissa Moore leads the Women's CT in first place after a dethroning Stephanie Gilmore to take Gold... Read more

2015 Men's CT #1: Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast

Posting this on the morning of a Men's QF draw that no one expected to see.  We didn't favor any of the rookies except Matt Banting in this one, mostly because of unproven CT skill set.  But we did offer in our bold predictions of Rookie Reviews that Wiggolly Dantas would be in the top 15 at years end and that Italo Ferreira would post at least a R2 upset before the Rio Pro.  Both those predictions seemingly less bold now, eh? The QuikPro this year has been an outstanding... Read more

2015 Rookie Preview: Tatiana Weston-Webb (HAW)

Tatiana Weston-Webb - HAW, G                    Rank:  16              Proj:  14 There's a lot to like about the solo debut on the Women's CT this year.  Tatiana Weston-Webb may only be turning 19 years old in 2015, but her performance on last years QS proves why she belongs in the top 17. In 2014 she boasted a 27 QSF and was constantly in the mix for a W, though her lone win came at QS #13 over Alessa Quizon, she managed 5 QA's in the year.  Her 12.28 AHS may be nothing... Read more

2015 Rookie Review: Italo Ferreira (BRA)

Italo Ferreira - BRA, G                      Rank:  26            Proj:   24 Here's a guy that you're going to have to go with your gut instinct in early in 2015.  Italo (EE-tah-lo) Ferreira put together an outstanding 2014 QS performance, with some highlights including a 5 REA, 14.16 AHS, and a 32 QSF for 892.17 TFP.  That's a hefty total, and he made 3 F, but never won an event. Ferreira is a manufacturer, reminiscent of Mick Fanning... Read more

2015 Rookie Preview: Keanu Asing (HAW)

Keanu Asing - HAW, R                      Rank:  28             Proj:   27 Keanu Asing has popped up in the CT before, once even at the Quiksilver Pro New York of all places.  He's been a constant threat in the QS, but is making the jump to CT a bit early in our opinion.  He hasn't dominated the QS by any means; in 2014 Asing posted just 538.19 TFP, with a very average 12.52 AHS, dismal 13 QSF (dismal for a CT promotion, not in terms of QS percentile), and an ice cold 2.69...
