Felipe Toledo // France // 0:27

posted by / Video / September 26, 2013

Although Felipe Toledo is one of the most exciting WCT rookies in recent years, the kid has yet to taste a semifinal. He’s got the moon jumps down and he’s even stuck a few of those big airs in heats, but he hasn’t been able to cultivate enough momentum to find himself in the final four. But with warmups like this, we get a hunch that this might be Felipe’s event to go deep — he’s already been off to a fiery start.

    Don’t hype Felipe… he doesn’t need it. The blind-looking kid is more than a pinball wizard; he’s got unusually good rail style too. The judges could learn a lot more from him than he could from the other Brazilian CT surfers… who, by the way, do not really represent Brazilian surfers that well (though Heitor eventually did get good to watch… but look where that got him with the kook-style-loving judges). The judging will never be taken seriously while Sally Fitzgibbons and Cowboy de Souza – crossed-up surfers who many of us would consider kooks, form-wise, if they were surfers at our local breaks – are winning contests.
