Leco realized his dream of a World Championship Title in 2012 after Top 5 finishes in 2010 and 2011 - possessing a devastating back hand, Leco's smooth style and technical board skills will stand him in good stead in the Abu Dhabi ALl Stars Invitational
Caio stormed onto the scene in 2011 by making his way through the Trials and into the main event, to finish in an impressive 5th place. Since then he has been one of the top contenders on Tour, climaxing with a 2nd place finish at the Location X Finals. Caio's explosive and unpredictable style will turn heads in the wave pool
Zane Schweitzer has been one of the most progressive surfers on Tour since the outset, with a radical and explosive style focused on above the lip maneuvers and pushing the envelope of performance riding. This approach should come in valuable in the wave pool, as the mechanical consistency will provide the ultimate launch pad
Kody stormed onto the scene in 2011 with a display of fluid and high performance surfing that saw him win the Trials in France and earn the coveted Rookie of the Year award in 2011. He has since refined his surfing further, reaching the Finals at Sunset this year to finish in 3rd. Kody's style will fit will in the wave pool
Beau came on Tour at the beginning of 2012 and has consistently posted strong finishes through the year, and has certainly come of age this year with an incredible performance at the World Tour Opener at Sunset Beach, finishing in 5th place. Beau's more traditional power and flow will make him one to look out for in the wave pool
Jamie is an interesting addition to the mix of exceptional talent present at the Abu Dhabi All Stars: with a background of stamina and performance paddling, Jamie has also made a name for himself charging some of the biggest surf in the world, showcasing his versatility and adaptability. This versatility will serve him well as he hits the wave pool in Abu Dhabi
Format for Day 2 ~ 4/5
The top 6 advance directly to the Quarter Finals - all the others will go into a sudden death round this morning. The standings going into today are as follows:
|Ranking||Athletes||Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Overall|
Format for Day 1 ~ 4/4
With a completely managable and predictable playing field, an innovative new format will be introduced at the Abu Dhabi All Stars, to promote performance riding and the most progressive and dynamic competition possible.
- Round 1 will feature only the right hand breaking wave, with every rider getting 3 waves each, with their best wave to count. This will be a non elimnation round.
- Round 2 will feature only the left hand breaking wave, with every rider getting 3 waves each, with their best wave to count. Again, this will be a non elimination round.
- Round 3 will feature only the closeout wave, providing a junction section for riders to either boost air or lay into driving turns on. Again, each rider will get 3 waves each, with their best wave to count.
The best waves from Round 1, 2 and 3 will be added together to provide an overall result, with the Top 6 athletes advancing through to the quarter finals.
- Sudden Death Round: The remaining athletes will go into a Sudden Death round for the final 2 places in the quarterfinals. Each athlete in this round will be allowed 3 waves of their choice, with their best ride counting towards their chances of advancing or not into the quarterfinals.
