9+ Expert Insights Into Who’s Winning Bells
Jake ‘Snaketales’ Paterson and Harry Mann pick 2023’s bell-ringers.
The Bells waiting period begins tomorrow – with the first signs of a wintery cold front hitting the East Coast, two Aussies donning yellow coming into their home leg, an Occy vs Tom Curren heritage heat, two GOATS below the cut, and Owen Wright surfing his last ever CT, there will be no shortage of juicy storylines to follow.
While the forecast for Bells a few days ago looked like it wouldn’t run in the opening few days, Torquay is notoriously unpredictable for the chart oracles over at Surfline. Translation: Maybe don’t sleep until noon tomorrow (also it’s a Tuesday, pull yourself together).
In here you can find local bowl expert Harry Mann’s, as well as supercoach and former CT surfer Jake ‘SnakeTales’ Paterson’s picks for the forthcoming event in this week’s special Bells podcast.
Study, cross-reference and then go with your gut feeling over at Betonline.AG.
Like Harry Mann, Snake is of the belief that this event is Ethan Ewing and Steph Gilmore’s to lose. Nine other hot takes include:
- Never get to the bottom at Bells
- Occy as a favorite over Curren
- Big easter tides dramatically changing the lineup
- Callum Robson/Rio Waida as underdogs
- The need for longer boards at Bells
- Bells vs Winki
- Is Bells an old-man’s game?
- EE vs JJF – who wins?
- The similarities between J Bay and Bells
You can find Mikey C’s picks below
- $100 on Filipe Toledo at +600 to win $600
- $60 on Ethan Ewing at +600 to win $360
