The World’s 78th Ranked Surfer Got Stuck In Bali During Covid

Here are the results. 

Words by stab

Timothee Bisso (FRA) is the 50th ranked surfer on the 2020 QS. 

Adding the Top-34 to that number, then subtracting the six CT surfers who currently sit above Tim on the QS rankings, that makes our French pal the 78th best competitive surfer in the world* until covid ends. Which means maybe forever.  

Whether on purpose or by happenstance, Tim got stuck in Bali during covid with his pal Max Desantis, and let’s just say the two have made the most of their situation. 

Splitting time between the Bukit and Canggu, Tim has put on a noeworthy tube and turn display, which has been largely facilitated by the extra kgs he’s added in the “off-season”. Hard to tell if that’s muscle or just too much nasi, but either way it’s working for the human wrecking ball.

*Kinda crazy to think that the (on-paper) 78th best person in the world at something can’t even get paid to do it. But that’s a topic for another day.
