    Most Overrated ASP Champ in History?

    I know this isn't a fair question, but when I watch Sunny Garcia surf just don't get it...his drops and bottom turns are kind of stiff.

    My most overrated ASP Champ is Sunny Garcia.

    for a list of champs:

    I just found out Martin Potter is from the UK!!! I always thought he was an aussie!!

    Ceej is my man! Fellow goofy footer..love his style. His backhand is killer. Huge hacks. Too bad it was a shortened season though.

  3. To be #1 proves someone has skills... So 'nuff respect due. Nonetheless, most overrated ASP champ: '87 winner Barton Lynch...consistent, 4 to the beach, solid in the big stuff but...Boring

    Potter kind of renounced is South African citizenship as a protest of Apartheid. That was waaaay back when Russia was just one part of the "evil empire' of the Soviet Union, there were two Germanies, and Al Gore had yet to invent the Internet

    goofyfooter or not, i'm inclined to think that CJ only won his title b/c of the shortened season.

    Yea I agree with DaMook. Sunny has all the bravado with the Da Hui attitude but is kinda weak overall with the same frontside squat-hack. And Layne Beachley has a similar hack so that must have been the hot move back then. Because of the lack additional skills, I feel these two champs are way overrated...especially Layne!

    Barton Lynch was my #2. But its Sunny's attitude that makes him #1.

    damien hardman.
    good choice on barton lynch,though.damien hardman was worse.

    this goes back a ways,but,there's lots of former champs that really weren't.
    pt shouldn't have got it,though he was great,either.mp was the best that year,but the new tour was a crock.the fact that wayne lynch and mp never won the tour is like hawaiians who rip but mostly only in Hawaii.
    on that note,kong should have been champ but got screwed in hawaii.the rolf aurness thing in australia was weird,too,and so was the nat young championship.how about corky carroll?he was never the best,either.i know,these are the pre-asp champs.
