We have been forced to do the math. Why? Aritz Aranburu is close to qualify for the 2014 ASP WT again, but he is not there yet. His 7th finish during the Reef Hawaii Pro in Haleiwa, an ASP PRIME sanctioned event, was a huge step, but work is not over.
With solid 15 to 20 footers expected to roll at Sunset this friday November 29th, the Vans World Cup of Surfing will resume with lots to be decided. We all know that the top 32 at the One World Ranking will get a spot for the WT next year. Bettering their 6th best result is what all the contenders are looking for. This Excel sheet aims to help all of us (high-performance lovers) to understand the outcome of the wins and losses at Sunset these upcoming days.
Let’s put an example: if Aritz loses his Round 64 clash, the green boxes mean the results that the rest of the field must accomplish to overtake Aritz. Marc Lacomare (FRA) will need a 3rd or better, Conner Coffin (USA) must finish runner up or win the event…
Besides the QS warriors, let’s not forget that the WT-ers still have to surf the Pipe Masters. Raoni Monteiro, Pat Gudauskas and Miguel Pupo will add extra points by finishing equal 9th or better at Pipe.
Rankings are hot!!!
