THE QUIK PRO FRANCE

Watch John John put together a 19.90 heat total against Mick in round 5.

7 surfers are in contention for the world title. Here are the scenarios:
– If Gabriel finishes 25th or 13th in Portugal, Joel and John John will need a 2nd, Mick; 5th and Kelly; 25th to send the title race to Pipe.
– If Gabriel finishes 9th, Joel and John John will need a 1st, Mick a 2nd, Kelly a 3rd.
– If Gabriel makes the quarters, Joel and John John will be out of the race, Mick and Kelly will need a 1st.
– A third place finish for Gabby, and Mick and Kelly will need a 1st. If Gabriel finishes 2nd, Mick will be out of the race, Kelly will need a 1st.
– But, if Gabriel finishes 1st, he will win the world title in Portugal.
– Taj and Michel are still mathematical chances but so far from the hitting range it’s not worth reporting.
