    My picks:
    1. Adriana Harlan: big waves – no fear, the future of women’s waveriding, amazing, great video
    2. Eric Worrall: Goes BIG, smooth, great video, nice rail presses
    3. Mark Miedama: fun to watch, surf style, longboard, power, pre-air, jibbing the lip, strapless air tack
    4. Luke Whiteside: lands difficult tricks
    5. Marilou Lavalee: lands difficult tricks, goes big, fabulous, nice video
    Honorable mentions:
    Evan Netsh: goes big, graceful, has fun – so is fun to watch
    Rick Jensen: trains hard, goes big
    Alex Fox: big inversions, obviously likes to fly, nice video, funny
    Joe Ruscito: goes big
    Note: videos with music that had swear words were disqualified, in my book. However, Niccolo Porcella’s big wave surfing rocked, despite the nasty language. Many had too much cable-park riding, that’s boring to watch (except for Worralls, he hits everything so hard).

    Why are there surf entries? Sorry if I am wrong, but isn't Triple S about pushing wakestyle with sliders and all.

    Triple-S stands for Surf, Slicks and Sliders. All three are represented during the event, and the overall champ has to do well in all 3 categories to claim the crown.

    With guys like JON MODICA, IAN ALLDREDGE, and JOSH MULCOY in the surf the Triple-S really does push surf, slicks and sliders!

    Niccolo is really showing the skills to be considered as a wild card winner! Keep those video entries coming!

    Jake and Jamies videos were the only ones that were truly sick, all the other ones were pretty average or sub par to be honest.

    its funny how much everyone here is just blowing their mates...
    nicollo is pretty alright in surf but lacks style or power in flats. duno about his slider hits either.
    julian hosp is soo far off the ball that its a joke.
    luke goes pretty alright in the surf again but flat and sliders not the best..

    jake, rick, fox, jamie B... those four will be a tight fit because they got sick style, push it tech and ride powered. unfortunately jamies vid didnt really do him justice and he would probably get the axe.

    Jamie Barrow has my vote and if you have ever seen him ride you would know why . Pushes the sport in the right direction and pushes it hard [like a porn star !] is fully committed to wake style, and rips in the surf and is a nice guy with a sense of humor ..... well any way thats my vote if it counts .

  • Shaun R says:

    You gotta watch Luke McG, this guy has it down. No one will touch him on the waves or that slider!

    Jake gets my vote.. Niccolo.. shouldn't he already be in the roster..? unhooked, kite low, lots of power and style.. Nice vid everyone!

    Nicolo is the shit!!! That dude tears it up in all SSS disciplines....He is a well rounded rider and honestly, better than a lot of the people on the invite list and not in just one discipline, but for some of the riders he is better in all 3. I am asking the same thing, why is he a wildcard, he should be an invite. Also, these vids capture each riders best rides, I saw some of these guys in both the wildcard and the invite ride on spot off the cam and they were pretty inconsistent, I saw Nicolo ride in Maui a few years back, guy was super consistent landing 90% of his tricks and crashing on those few 10% where he was pushing it and tweaking it out or trying to steez it up.

    Damn, that's a lot of wild cards. It's getting bigger and bigger! I say Jensen and/or Porcello! Amazed Porcello needs a wildcard!
    See you guys soon!

    If your kite is way high when doing wakestyle, you are not doing good. Look like a gypsy on the trapeze at circus. Kite low, full power, no dangle PLEASE!!!! PKRA= Dangle. NOT SSS

  • ToddJB says:
