WSL: Quiksilver Pro G-Land 2022 picks
|To Win 2022 Quiksilver Pro G-Land|
|John John Florence||+250|
Filipe Toledo is a 27-year-old from Brazil. Toledo is currently the No. 1 ranked surfer on the WSL Championship Tour with 24,440 points. In the first five championship events of the 2022 WSL season, Toledo had three ninth-place finishes to go along with one second and one. Toledo took home first place — and 10,000 points in the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach event.
The 2013 WSL Rookie of the Year, Toledo looks dialed in in 2022. He enters the Quiksilver Pro G-Land WSL competition coming off a ninth-place finish at the Margaret River Pro event.
John John Florence
John John Florence checks in at the No. 2 spot of the WSL Championship Tour with 23,275 points. The 29-year-old Hawaiian is one of five surfers in Men’s Championship Tour history to claim his first two World Titles in back-to-back years. Florence accomplished that feat in 2016 and 2017. The other members of that group are Mark Richards, Tom Carroll, Tom Curren, and Andy Irons.
Florence does not have any wins in the Championship Tour in 2022, but he has three top five finishes to go along with a 17th place finish and a runner-up finish. Florence finished second at the Margaret River Pro event. With that he has some momentum to carry into the Quiksilver Pro G-Land WSL competition.
Italo Ferreira is the 2019 WSL World Champion. The 28-year-old Brazilian was also the shortboard Gold Medal winner at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Ferreira is currently in fifth place on the 2022 WSL Championship Tour with 18,895 points. The 2015 WSL Rookie of the Year has only finished outside the top-10 on one occasion in 2022. That came at the Hurley Pro Sunset Beach event, where he finished in 17th position. Ferreira has back-to-back fifth place finishes in his past two competitions.
The 50-year-old Kelly Slater started the 2022 WSL Championship Tour with a first place finish at the Billabong Pro Pipeline. Since then, the legendary American surfer has three 17th place finishes and one ninth place.
Slater has an advantage heading into the G-Land event, he won the first WSL event there in 1995 and since then has often surfed at Plengkung Beach.
Slater is ranked No. 13 in the 2022 WSL Champions Tour with 15,980 points.
Look for Kelly Slater to win in an upset.
Pick: Kelly Slater to win the Quiksilver Pro G-Land WSL.
