2014 ASP Billabong Rio Pro Pundit Picks The Blind TeamShea Lopez, Derek Rielly, Nick Carroll, Groundswell and the other pundits offer great insight into the surfers when offering their pundit picks. We do it differently. For our Fantasy Surfer pundit picks, we look at the numbers and not the surfers’ names. We go in blind. The Blind Team did OK at Margs (840 pts, #1033 rank), but didn’t fair so hot at Bells (710 pts, #17472 rank). For Rio, we picked our team based on past results in performance waves (vs power or barrels). For our personal club teams, we pick based on our guts and who we think are in form, but for these picks below, we remove all of the mind games. Here you go.
