Oi Rio Pro: Shea Lopez Pundit Picks 2015Oi Rio Pro: Shea Lopez Pundit Picks his team for the 2015 contest in Brazil.
The current world champion, Gabriel Medina, is Brazilian; the current world number one, Adriano De Souza, is Brazilian; the winner of the last WSL event at Lowers, Filipe Toledo, is Brazilian. What in the world is in the water down in Brazil? The turbo-charged atmosphere that surrounds their surf scene is producing some of the best competitors in the world. As the event gets underway, you can expect a continued onslaught from the Brazilian contingency as they attack the beachbreak wedges of Rio. With that in mind, I’ve built my Fantasy Surfer team to reflect a mix of surfers that can get it done in a wide range of beachbreak conditions.
