The final 2/3 of a 2018 Margaret River Pro have left on vacation to Bali. In box you’ve been underneath a stone a past few weeks, we’ll refurbish we as to since Western Australia’s premiere Championship Tour eventuality has left on a transport about.
That’s it. Fear of sharks. Shark paranoia. Surfers refusing to paddle out in “shark infested” waters. Any approach we cut it, this year’s Western Australia eventuality was put on reason in Apr and a WSL will be picking it behind adult this week in Bali. Specifically during a vale left-hander Uluwatu.
So a same eventuality is going to continue along like zero happened, put a subsequent feverishness in a H2O in Bali, and finish adult with some slow questions:
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT MY FANTASY SURFER TEAM?
The brief answer is: it doesn’t. The prolonged answer is a small some-more difficult to explain. Your teams for Margaret River were saved and logged in your group page and in Fantasy Surfer’s servers. They’re sealed in and accounted for. Your Margaret River group now becomes your Uluwatu team. You don’t have to worry about creation trades for this eventuality since it’s not an option. This is a delay of an eventuality that has already started. Your Margaret River group lives on! Trading stays sealed between a Corona Bali Protected and a Uluwatu Pro. After Uluwatu has been completed, trade will open for J-Bay with your Corona Bali Protected teams prepared to be practiced for J-Bay.
WILL THEY MOVE THIS EVENT TO ULUWATU IN THE FUTURE?
Hard to contend during this point, though a WSL would LOVE to have an Indonesian leg of a tour. Two universe category waves that each surfer is psyched to transport to.
DOES THIS MEAN WEST AUSTRALIA IS OFF THE TOUR?
There have been rumors of a Australian leg of a debate being reduced by one eventuality for a prolonged time. West Australia is kind of a prolonged approach for everybody to go, and a good commission of a surfers would rather equivocate a place if possible. But it has also constructed unchanging swell, varying locations, and they have plain financial subsidy by a Western Australian government.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A SURFER IS INJURED FOR ULUWATU?
Interesting question. We’ve listened a gossip or dual floating around that John John Florence competence not be during 100% right now and that there’s a probability he will repel from Uluwatu. If he does, his competition will get a transport by in their heat, and John John will finish with a 3rd Round loss. In Fantasy Surfer speak, he will occupy one of a 36 scoring spots for this eventuality and will NOT be authorised to be transposed by your swap surfer on your team.
WHEN WILL THE EVENT BEGIN?
The WSL has motionless that initial call for a eventuality will be during 7am internal time Jun 8th. The eventuality contingency finish no after than Jun 13th per a prior WSL statement.
HASN’T THE WSL BEEN TO ULUWATU BEFORE?
Yes, they were here in 2008. It was Bruce Irons usually CT feat in his career. Only 5 of a stream surfers on debate surfed in a eventuality (Kelly Slater, Joel Parkinson, Adriano DeSouza, Owen Wright, Jordy Smith). Highlights are below.
And here’s some contribution for we to coddle over for a event:
WHO: 24 of a Men’s WSL Top 34 + 2 wildcards, and 8 of a Women’s WSL Top 17 + 1 wildcard.
