World Surf League SVP of Tours & Competition and good friend of the pod Pat O’Connell returns to go in depth on WSL’s big announcement about the 2021 Championship Tour. He talks about starting the season at Maui and Pipeline, Lower Trestles as the location for the first WSL Finals, safety measures for the season, and where else the tour will be heading this year. They break down the growing list of World Title contenders, discussing Gabriel Medina’s career at Trestles, when Lakey Peterson is at her best, Carissa Moore being cool under pressure, and Kolohe Andino’s backhand. Pat and Dave then fire up the Time Machine and imagine what surfers would have been crowned World Champion in 2019 under the new rules at the 2021 Finals location.
