Red Bull Margaret River Cheat Sheet
Red Bull has put together a great list
of pundit picks for the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro including from Derek Rielly, Travis Ferre, Marcus Sanders and Chris Binns.
Taj Burrow, almost 36 years old now, has spent his life in WA’s south-west thanks to American parents who took the old adage ‘go west’ to its most extreme geographical point. This year he’ll win and it will come more easily than he might believe possible, even with a slight shade of mockery.

Let’s go out on a limb. I’m honestly predicting Gabriel Medina to go back to back. He’s got it all figured out. All of it.
– Travis Ferre, What Youth
Jordy Smith. He’s there early with a big quiver up to 6ft 10in. He’s got very long arms. A solid rail. He’s motivated. As long as he can avoid the dreaded Marg’s interference off the peak, he’ll take it home to South Africa.
– Marcus Sanders, Surfline
Darkhorse? Artiz Aranburu slays big water. When Margarets looks like Sunset, Aritz will be gobbling golden boys en route to the podium. But ignore if the swell fails to front.
