Awesome that Angely made it.

Cool to see Airton with strapless as well.

And my favourites Antonin and Marc J Made it as well.

Aurelien will be showing a nice variety as well.

Let's hope they award new tricks this time with extra points...to see something new and not always the same over and over again...

sick!

lets add in a strapless dangling surfboard, you know... just to make the judging more transparent! lol



just let him put on his own show, not at expense of another sick rider that can't enter.

where are the rules for this year?

How about some transparency this year!!!!!!!! - you know... before hand.. to make things fair

Airton is fun, but doesn't make much sense comparing apples and oranges, this is all about going big with a TT. Sam Light and Gijs Wassenaar will be disappointed. And first year, other than injuries, without Lenten Ruben?

Looks like Clemet Huot is the youngest at 16 years old. Stay healthy dude! And another on Naish Pivot. Maybe Stuart Downey on Naish as well, but I think he prefers the Torch.

Is it earned or token... couldn't find her vid? Guess we'll find out either way, good luck to her.

Now let's hope for some SERIOUS conditions. 40+ kts Cape Doctor and clean 3m kickers, not 25-30 kts in bumpy messy waters.
