Yago Dora And A Wave That Looks Very Much Like Duranbah, But Isn't

Yago Dora's got sticky feet. 

And speaking of feet, we can't help but wonder if the Brazilian is going to wear booties at Bells again this year. It wasn’t that cold in 2018 – some people were in short-arms – but if he’s going to surf like this, Yago can wear whatever the hell he wants.

Before entering Torquay's chilly waters, Dora spent the month of March bouncing around Brazil and chasing banks reminiscent of Dbah (see above). Coincidentally, these peaky beachbreaks were the best possible warmup for the "Gold Coast" event, which actually took place across the border in New South Wales. 

During his stint at the Quik Pro D-Bah, Yago made full rotations look wildly effortless, maintaining a strike rate (you like that, Pottz?) that professional bowlers would envy. He stuck three of them in the same heat and probably would have finaled had he not encountered the Terminator in Round 4. 

If the World Tour consisted strictly of head-high beach breaks, Yago would be a top-5 surfer all day long. Could you watch the video and convince us otherwise?
