Watch: Jack Robinson Raw
It was often said that Taj Burrow was the best surfer never to win a world title. Could Jack Robinson be the best surfer never to make the CT?
The 21-year old West Australian has plenty of years left to qualify, however despite his undeniable talent and the occasional big win he's never got close. In fact, his 39th place last year was the first time he'd cracked the top 50.
This year he got off to a great start, coming second in the Sunset Open and winning the Volcom Pipe Pro, which follows a regular pattern of great Hawaiian results and shitty everywhere else. Which makes you think that if he can crack it, and put the small-wave QS quagmire behind him then a long CT career beckons.
Unfortunately the slide has already begun this year, with a meagre 25th place at the US Open, Jack dropped down to 17th on the rankings and he's starting to lose sight of the peloton. Nothing a solid Hawaiian showing cant bridge.
Meanwhile, here's Jack in red hot form showing us what he can do outside of the competition singlet.
