    I'd vote for Tudor in front of all these guys, but Machado's style is truly amazing, as well.

    +1...John John

    Backside?...Bobby Martinez...ma man!

    RE: your poll....I'd say Dane R. when he lays down his power. Machado a little too light footed. IMO

    I think you have to define style. Are you including creativity? If so, I'm really surprised Slates is so low on the poll.

    i never was able to get into machado's style - i think it has to do with his personality. regardless, not into him/it. i think he tries too hard to fit that "soul surfer" mold

    slater's style in my opinion is as textbook as it gets. tons of power, flawless technique, no wasted movement - exactly what has led him to 11 titles

    dane has a lot more looseness/playfulness to his style and i hate to use the cliche term 'soul', but it described him well. a big reason why he wasn't able to fit the 'tour style' of surfing

    mick i'd say is similar to kelly - big, strong turns and overall powerful surfing. also more of a textbook style, perfectly suited to the tour.

    favorite surfer on tour - adam melling
