Billabong Pro Teahupoo Pundit Red Bull Cheat SheetDerek Rielly gives his predictions and picks for the 2014 contest in Tahiti.
WINNER: Kelly Slater
FINAL: CJ Hobgood vs Kelly Slater
DARK HORSE: Taj Burrow
STAY AWAY FROM: John John Florence
SURPRISE: Adriano de Souza
This is Kelly’s last year promenading on tour. No more will it feel like 11pm on a warm and humid Harlem night, with Kelly’s skin glistening. Kelly knows it, knows this is his last flip of the coin, and as a surf fan you might wanna pay more attention to that little desktop screen. Tahiti, Europe, Hawaii and then he’s done. And so his air at Teahupoo will be more serious. Kelly is fully aware that a win will secure his legacy. And so he will win, possessing a power that will obliterate the rest.
