Billabong Pro Tahiti: Shea Lopez Pundit Picks 2015Billabong Pro Tahiti: Shea Lopez Pundit Picks his team for the seventh stop on the WSL Championship Tour at the mutant reef break at Teahupo’o.
At a wave like Teahupoo, it pays to be tenacious. This is no place for the timid, the sitting ducks, the uninitiated. When the horizon darkens and the channel erupts in a fit of rabid spectators calling you into a wave that could very well kill you, there’s no room for hesitation. To win heats here, you need to stand your ground. You need to prolong the takeoff until you’re skirting the line between taking the wave of your dreams and the beating of your nightmares. You need to tame a wave that most of us would happily deem unrideable, and best of all, you need to make it look easy. It’s with this mantra in mind that I’ve drafted up my Fantasy Surfer team for Tahiti.
