    Felip is the man. If he was white, or from aus haw or US the surf media would be all over his bag but in typical fashion he gets shunned because he is brazilian. Lame....guy rips

    I got a few good air guys on my FS team. Medina, John John, and Kerr. I also have Mick, Nat, Owen Wright, and Atkinson. I think all these guys could win it if the waves get more turn oriented except for Atkinson, though I do think he is capable of a respectable finish. Those 3 air guys are my favorites for this event since there great with both airs and turns.

    He seems like a pretty stoked and cool dude too. I haven't surfed with him, so who knows if he fits the Brazo stereo type in the water.

    Probably does. Hate to be "that guy" but I have yet to meet one who doesn't

    that's how brazzos are.they are kind and loving and offer lots of coronas.

    as far as the rio contest goes,i havnt caught it live nor reviewed the reviews.its boring watching the worlds best struggle to win a heat with a 4.5 2 wave total.i don't care for the surf spot inequality,the contest would be better if they ran it in the great lakes
