Potential Changes On-Deck for Next Year’s Dream Tour!

Several of surfing’s biggest names got together two weeks ago on Australia’s Gold Cost for a two-day meeting, dubbed “Rabbit Camp 2009” (after former ASP President Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew’s annual strategy sessions) where event licensees, surfer’s representatives and ASP administrators discussed several key ideas which would change the face of next year’s ASP Dream Tour and the future of surfing. Although finalization of these new ideas discussed at the meeting will not be voted upon until October, there is a solid chance for some exciting changes for next year’s finest ASP competitors.

Women’s Finest Prep for Action

After a lengthy break from competition, the finest crop of competitive female talent are heading back to Australia to do battle at this year’s Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic, which will host a waiting period from September 30 through October 5 in Sydney at Dee Why Point. You’ll want to see what unfolds at the third of seven stops on the Women’s ASP Dream Tour as reigning two-time Women’s World Champ and current ratings leader Stephanie Gilmore, 21, will be working towards her third title and youngster Tyler Wright, 15, who won the Beachley Classic last year, will definitely be out to reclaim her event throne

C.J. Hobgood (USA), 30, current ASP World No. 2, has been on a tear this season, collecting three 5ths, a 3rd and a 9th during the first half of the year. Looking phenomenally fit and having been an historic doom-bringer during the back half of the ASP Dream Tour schedule, it would appear that Mr. Hobgood is sitting in a pretty good position. However, things weren’t always this good, and the soft-spoken Floridian recently opened up about life on the road with Eastern Surf Magazine. This…is their story…

Cardoso Bests Andre to Claim Azores Islands Pro

The inaugural ASP WQS 6-Star Azores Islands Pro presented by Nissan saw an all-Brazilian Final which saw young Brazilian William Cardoso, 23, defeat current ASP WQS No. 2 Jadson Andre to claim the crucial qualification points towards the ASP Dream Tour, while Andre’s runner-up finish solidifies him as a top threat on The Grind. Cardoso’s break-through victory launched him up the ladder in to the No. 14 seat amongst the finest up-and-coming competitive global talent and puts him in good position for a slot on next year’s ASP World Tour.

Fantasy Surfer: Trestles Time!

The Hurley Pro Trestles is set to host mainland America’s only stop on the ASP Dream Tour at the premier wave of Lower Trestles and Hurley is about to unleash a sick prize pack for Fantasy Surfer fanatics. So, who are you banking on for the Upcoming event? Will Parko’s reign on the 2009 season continue? A Mr. Kelly Slater has quite the history at the famed cobblestone reef, so will you lead with him? Maybe there will be a breakthrough performer at this year’s Hurley Pro Trestles, so start plotting out your team while there’s still time by logging in to FantasySurfer.com
