Y’been voting in the Hurley Pro Video Trials? We have. And, here’s who we’re voting for in the quarterfinals. Don’t take this lightly either – you might not be bothered now, but it could be your vote that’s the difference between a wildcard you bet cash on and a wildcard who’s heat means it’s snack time.
(watch the heat clips here)
Dusty Payne vs Albee Layer
Stab’s pick: Albee Layer
We f’sure had Dusty’s back in round one and got nothin’ but love for the dude. But… Albee comes out with an oop slammer so high that his filmer once again can’t keep his head in the frame. Mr Layer is on a height and full-rotation program that simply must be backed.
Jay Davies vs Ian Gentil
Stab’s pick: Jay Davies
PHWOAR. (Proper) Man turns from Jay here. That cutdown is just… everything. Ian looks solid but we’re gonna say that entering clips of Mex barrels ain’t the best strategy for winning a spot in surfing’s least barrel-based event.
Cam Richards vs Carlos Munoz
Stab’s pick: Carlos Munoz
Yup, we still adore Carlos, and #Cam still doesn’t need our help.
Ian Crane vs Patrick Gudauskas
Stab’s pick: Patrick Gudauskas
Patty sealed this one up with a) the backside combo on his first wave and b) the frontside slob on his second wave. Greasing the latter into an enthused foam climb really didn’t hurt his cause, either.
