FANTASYSURFER: Shane Dorian's Picks

When picking my team for Tavarua I tried to remember I will have to
keep three picks for the next event, Reunion Island. I tried to wait
until the last minute so I could check to get a good idea
of what kind of surf they will have. Well, there really isn’t a whole lot
in the swell window so I picked guys that will perform in the various
conditions Tavarua can produce.

Three of my picks for Tavarua:

  • Troy Brooks – Low priced, very smart and proven performer at Tavi (2
    previous 5th places)

  • Occy – Sentimental favorite, hollow left expert
  • Kelly – Assured me yesterday he’s not f*cking around now, I think he
    smells blood.
