SURFER Magazine’s Fantasy Surf League Review of the Top 44
Surfers are gamblers by nature. Think about it…we live for the thrill of taking risks: a big air, a late drop, paddling out on a huge day, they all add to our addiction of hazardous behavior, and when we’re dry docked on land it’s only natural that we search for ways to duplicate the buzz. So here’s a scary thought, SURFER Magazine is giving each of you 10 million dollars to gamble with this year. While you can’t take this cash to Vegas and blow it all on one hand of Black Jack you can distract yourself from school or work for hours on end with our new SURFER Magazine Fantasy Surf League. The premise is simple: you pick and name your own team of eight surfers from among the Top 44 in the world to compete against your friend’s team. Then, you manage your team throughout the 2004 pro tour season, making trades, growing your salary cap, and hopefully winning prizes. It’s all live and running now at FantasySurfer.com. Or just click on the Fantasy Surfer button on the homepage and sign up absolutely free. Get started earning points towards a dream trip to Hawaii or Fiji. —Chris Mauro
