Kai Otton // Wedged // 1:51

If Kai Otton didn’t deliver your faith during the four years he spent plowing through QS rankings back in the early ’00s, he should’ve done so during the eight years he’s spent requalifying as a giant killing contender on the CT. If you’re still not sold on Ottz, even after his third place finish in Portugal this year — where he took down the likes of Taj Burrow, Aritz Aranburu and Josh Kerr — have a gander  at his surfing in these wonky Australian wedges. If this doesn’t make you a believer, you may want to change religions.
