Filipe Toledo, 19 points (twice) in Ballito, South Africa
You’ve been watching Filipe Toledo’s heats at the Mr Price Pro in Ballito, South Africa, right? If not, you’ve missed two separate 19-point heat totals and some of the best full rotation airs ever done.

You’ve been watching Filipe Toledo’s heats at the Mr Price Pro in Ballito, South Africa, right? If not, you’ve missed two separate 19-point heat totals and some of the best full rotation airs ever done. Kid rarely does spin-reverts and rotates so quickly, and so efficiently that he usually lands with nose to beach rather than nose down the line. We’re calling first person to do a frontside 540. But that’s another story…
In the mean time, it’ll be odd if Filly doesn’t win this event. The punchy Ballito beachbreaks suit his game perfectly. Stab highly recommends you watch his quarterfinal against Tiago Pires. And, his two heats after that, if he can keep the music playing.
