Shea’s Fiji Roster

Shea Lopez gives his Fantasy Surfer picks for the Volcom Fiji Pro

Cloudbreak is a massive playing field by World Tour standards, with no distinct take off or lineup spots. The competitors who are able to clearly see the different types of waves that peel down the reef through changes in tide and swell will have a tremendous advantage. Thus the Hobgoods and Slater are obvious picks, and unless you are looking to gain some major ground on other Fantasy Surfer players with a gamble or three, it would be wise to not bet against them and go with their proven results in Fiji. If you do decide to bail on Slater, Parko is not to be overlooked here. After a terrible showing in Rio, Parko will be searching for redemption and is always one of the best guys in the water at Cloudbreak, whether competing or freesurfing.

Shea Lopez on who to pick for your Fantasy Surfer team

As I watched heats from The Drug Aware Pro, it was clear that the conditions play an important factor in determining which surfer will excel on any given day. For example: When you put a healthy and fit Dusty Payne in big, lumpy Margaret River surf, you can see his experience from big, tricky, windblown waves back home on Maui. It was that sense of comfort and confidence that allowed him to perform at his peak.
