ASP World Tour: top surfers with sets on sight

The list of surfers that will compete at the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour has been defined.


The Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons set the final rankings and decisive waves were surfed in the last heats of the Triple Crown of Surfing.

The top 22 ranked surfers on the year-end ASP World Championship Tour rankings earn direct access to the 2013 ASP World Tour. Kai Otton, from Australia, is the last one in the list.

Then, in order to get the complete roster, the top 10 surfers ranked on the year-end ASP World Rankings - and not including surfers qualifying in the Top 22 on the ASP WCT rankings – also win a ticket to the Dream Tour.

Tiago Pires is the last surfer to check-in at the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour. The Portuguese rider will join three other European surfers: Jeremy Flores, Michel Bourez and Glen Hall. The two wildcards chosen by the ASP World Tour are Dusty Payne and Raoni Monteiro.
