Watch: Yago Dora // Pipe or bust

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Originally pegged as a spontaneous freesurfer, Yago Dora has hard to rein in his showman instincts to keep his place on the CT. Never was that more crucial than heading into Hawaii this year where he was on the wrong side of the cut off in the Top 32 and way out in the nether reaches of the QS. It was Pipe or bust for ol' Yago.

This clip was shot through the early season where each session was dripping with significance; building his knowledge bank, increasing his heat armoury.

Worked too. Fella finished fifth at Pipe launching him inside the Top 22 and onto the 2019 season.
