With the anything-but-quick Quik Pro and the Bells slopfest in the books, predicting contenders for the 2015 WSL crown is a breeze.

Conlogue On The Rocks

Close encounters of the exposed-reef kind

Courtney Conlogue must’ve been impressed by Nikki Van Dijk’s epic tumble over the Bells bricks last year.
