So far, Matt Wilkinson has showed no mercy this season. He dominated the 2016 Quiksilver Pro a couple weeks back, and has now beaten Jordy Smith in the 2016 RipCurl Pro final at Bells Beach. Wilko is proving to be a deadly competitor. His maneuvers have been clean and powerful, his wave selection strategy has been on point, and we are assuming these wins have put him in a good headspace.
Matt Wilkinson is also leading the Men’s CT ranking with over 20,000 points with only two events completed, followed by Kolohe Andino and Jordy Smith. Next stop on tour is the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro in Western Australia. Let’s see if Wilko, the Australian local, can go 3 for 3!
