When BDPS speaks, you listen. Thanks to the audio quality in his underground surf dungeon, that’s guaranteed to be a challenge. 

Also a guaranteed challenge, is the woeful Porty forey. “For Supertubos you want ENE wind and the forecast is currently a straight W swell with strong winds. It will be a nightmare out there,” Stab’s resident chart oracle informed us.

But when you’re an addict, even sub par crack will do the job – rain, hail or nightmare, we’ll be watching the broady well past the eleventh hour with tense myofibers and dilated pupils. 

BDPS + Mikey C’s picks below – as always, place your bets over at Betonline.AG.
