Drug Aware Margaret River Pro Pundit Analysis by Nick Carroll to help with Fantasy Surfer.Nick Carroll is a long time surfer and surf writer including a book on his brother the 1983 & 1984 World Tour Champion: TC, the story of Tom Carroll. Here Nick gives his pundit analysis of what to expect at the ASP Drug Aware Margaret River Pro 2014 for Surfing Life.
It’s still just the start of a long 2014 and it’s a major venue change from Snapper, so we can expect to see some surprising form and results switches. Obviously there’ll be eyes on Gabriel Medina and Joel Parkinson after their big finale two weeks ago, but other than Snapper’s top four, major threats will include Nat Young –whose Quik Pro form was dazzling and who has an instinctive connection with cool-water reef waves –and we suspect Owen Wright, who may not yet feel fully confident of his ability to win a WCT again but whose skills look if anything a fraction stronger than pre-injury. We also feel that Julian Wilson will be carrying over some emotional energy from his loss at Snapper and may bring something extra to his heats as a result. -more-
