On 09/04/2012 (tomorrow), the SATA Airlines Azores Pro will kick off. This contest is a 6 Star rated event.
For Fantasy Pro Surfing, this is my team:
Tried and True
I picked Glen Hall and Nathan Hedge because they are just two tried and true competitors. Nathan Hedge is not the most radical guy (trick-wise), but he has a snappiness about his surfing that the judges love. Freddy is the same but with more variation. These guys are fired up and want to win. Some other solid picks that I have seen in the draw include Nate Yoemans, Nat Young (both are deadly on their backhand), and Leonardo Neves who is a blue.
There are a few guys in the draw that seem to be having some momentum going into the event. These are guys like Tomas Hermes, Joan Duru, and Jean Da Silva. I would never count out Mitch Crews either. He came in as a blue so he has the opportunity to score some extra points.
Well, the event starts tomorrow so let’s hope for some good surfing and for myself, I am praying for once to break the 2o,000 point barrier.
