Bells Round 2 Update

They surfed R2 in that?  Must be a very daunting forecast..... Men's R2 Well Mick and Adriano got through to R3 as expected.  De Souza grabbing the R2 win with a little bit of suspense at the end there, but just a karma payback for Brett Simpson stealing his R1.  Look for both of them to go for the QF and beyond here, we still love them as our Tier A picks. Taj Burrow dropped another R2 axe on Ricardo Christie, but man did Christie show out today!  He put... Read more

Rip Curl Bells Beach R1 Update

TRUST IN SURF-STATS! Well, we said a lot of things, and while for some of them we wait to see the outcome, others panned out beautifully in R1 of the Men's and Women's Bells. In our Men's WSL Fantasy Surfing write-ups, we gave you Tier A as Mick Fanning and Adriano De Souza.  Both lost R1.  Who knew?  But that's not the end of the road for these two high seeds, Fanning faces a novice 16 year-old WC in Joe Van Dijk and De Souza will battle C.J.

Bleak Opening Bells Week and a Nod to De Souza

The event window for Bells this year opens next Wednesday April 1 (Tuesday, March 31 at 1pm PST) and so far, the first week's forecast looks pretty bleak.  Here's the report from Magicseaweed. Wednesday through Sunday morning looks like 2-3' range with a wide variety of winds throughout the week and mostly overcast skies.  Let's see how commish KP handles this situation, which unfortunately looks like it will resemble the "Gold Coast Endless Lay Day of 2015"  - at least for the first week. Maybe KP will "get... Read more

Men's Bells Beach Conditions AHS

Here's a great tool for you to use in drafting your Bells Beach Men's lineup.  You can sort by each surfer's AHS for CT events in Australia, events that Rip Curl sponsored, at Bells Beach in the past, on Right hand waves, at Point Breaks, and at Reef-Bottom Breaks.  PCA is their Past Conditions Average, which averages the conditions for an overall value at Bells. (*) Surfer has only one event on the CT for such conditions. Notable Right-Hand Wave low-scorers are Jadson Andre (an ice-cold 11.3), Kai Otton (11.71)... Read more

Thinking Strategy - Heat Draws and Diversifying Your Lineup

Heat Draws Listen, here at SS we don't think anyone pays nearly enough attention to the Heat Draw.  In the Men's R1 there will be... Read more
