A potential finals day waits ahead for the Worlds best surfer’s in Fiji. With epic conditions predicted we take a look at the round 4 lineups.
Heat #1 – Gabriel Medina, Michel Bourez,Dusty Payne
Review – Medina has looked unstoppable so far on his forehand, a previous winner at the event, and with Bourez and Payne just squeezing through round 3 heats he looks hardest to beat in heat 1.
Best Bet – Medina $1.70
Heat #2 – Kelly Slater, Wiggolly Dantas, Adriano de Souza
Review – Kelly, Kelly, Kelly! The Fijian king was ultra impressive in tricky round 3 conditions, whether its at Restaurants or Cloudbreak he’s the main man to beat. Adriano showed promise in earlier rounds, whilst Wiggly won a lottery ticket.
Best Bet – Slater $1.50
Heat #3 – Jadson Andre, Josh Kerr, Mick Fanning
Review – Kerrzy, he’s a tube monster and very under rated in backhand tubes. Fanning cruised through his previous heats and Jadson showed promise. Tipping Kerrzy to get the job done in the hollow conditions
Best Bet – Kerr $3
Heat #4 – John John Florence, Adrian Buchan, Matt Wilkinson
Review – John John has been on a tear keeping his winning form rolling from last event, Jeeps rating leader Matt Wilkinson survived a tough round 3 heat with his backhand attack, whilst Ace Buchan continues to show his forehand barrel talent in Fiji. Tipping an upset here, Ace is great value.
Best Bet – Ace Buchan $4.50
