How To Spend Your Last $230 Betting On COOKING Teahupo’o

Today will see carnage. Hopefully not in our bank account.

If all goes to the WSL’s/Surfline’s master plans, Teahupo’o should be rilfing today.

10-15 foot, straight offshore, and squarer than a city block.

We’re talking shades of 2014, sans the John-Kelly matchup.

Surf fans around the globe will have their incognito tabs ready, darting dexterously between A+ surf action and Excel spreadsheets, depending on their bosses’ proximity.

The only way to make today even more intoxicating? Putting a little skin in the game.

Self-mutilation not required. But if you want a reminder of just how wrong things can go at Chopes, rewatch Kelia Moniz’s ill-fated but highly applaudable attempt to wrangle the beast on a log in 2000-something.

Stab’s official surf betting partner this season is, and we’ve gone pretty hard with our punts on Tahiti Day 3. Thus far in the event we’re down $25, so let’s hope some of these picks hit.

  • $20 on Caroline Marx at +125 to win $25
