Meanwhile, an elite squad of 34 warrior practitioners of the wave shredding arts has been announced, from the best of them, Kelly 'smell you later' Slater at no.1, and the worst of them, Gabe 'miss piggy' Kling at 34. Kling, along with Kai Ottz received the coveted ASP wildcards. ASP tour manager Renato, who sometimes has blonde hair, sometimes brown and shreds a twinfin or possibly quad fish, said,"Following the allocation of the two ASP Wildcards, the 2011 ASP Top 34 have been determined with the seed list below.

Will Bobby cheer the fuck up? What's JayDub gonna do? Can Mimi, Spartan or Saca storm the Top 5? What next for Matty Wilko's Barnet? How much longer can Taylor go? Will there be any surf?
