Tom Whitaker: he'll win all the remaining stages

The Australian ASP veteran Tom Whitaker, 30, is making a comeback to the Dream Tour.

Whitaker will rejoin the elite surfers by replacing injured Joel Parkinson.

In 2006, his last appearance on the ASP World Tour, Tom finished 6th place.

Tom Whitaker will be trying to impress the judges in the last six stages of the Tour: Trestles (USA Hurley Pro), South West Coast (Quiksilver Pro France), Peniche (Portugal Rip Curl Pro), Somewhere In (Puerto Rico Rip Curl Search), Banzai Pipeline (Hawaii Billabong Pipe Masters).

It is one of the sport's most forgotten disciplines. The stand-up bodyboarding movement had its heyday between the late 1980s and early 1990s, but it continues to be an exquisite art.
