Snaketales Is Back!

Crane and Dunphy in, Zeke and Leo out?

If the QS is anything like Snaketales portrays it to be, and disregarding actual waves they have to surf, the Q might actually be a more enjoyable competitive experience than the CT. Every time one of Jake Paterson’s handicam edits graces our feed, we can’t help but envy the Griffins, the Ramzis, the Marcs and Kanoas, and this year, the Ian Cranes and Michael Dunphies of the world, who get to circumnavigate the globe with their friends, winning and losing career-shaping heats but having a blast all the while. 

The Snaketales squad didn’t have a great run at the Newcastle QS 6,000, but the Manly event starts today so let’s hope for a better showing near Stab’s Aussie offices. We’ll have Jake Embrey surveying the beach scene for any hot stories or general bikini malfunctions. 

Also, we might as well take this time to lay out some predictions.

Who of the 2018 Snaketales cast, which includes Griffin C., Ramzi B., Marc L., Kanoa I., Michael D., and Ian C., will qualify for next year’s Tour?

Historically speaking, Snake has averaged two qualifiers per year. So who ya got in 2018?
