It's a new dawn for the World Tour. 3X World Champ and 11X World Champ having fun at the press conference kicking off the new year and the new season of the Samsung Galaxy ASP. With a decent run of swell in the forecast we are looking good to start right off. Lets briefly take a look at the ASP change and lets take a look at the Fantasy picks and info on the new ASP site.
The ASP Tour was transferred to a group called ZoSea. ZoSea is headed by Paul Speaker, a former executive at Time Warner, the NFL and a Quiksilver board member, along with Terry Hardy, who is the manager of Slater and John John Florence. Dirk Ziff, the son of a publishing magnate, backs ZoSea financially but hasn't had a public role in the development of the new organization. ZoSea moved the ASP offices from Coolangatta, Australia, to Santa Monica, Calif., and has signed content deals with ESPN, Facebook and YouTube. It also recently announced that Samsung Galaxy came aboard as the tour's first umbrella sponsor since Foster's beer in the mid-2000s. GoPro is also in on the action. No financial terms from any of these deals have been made available.
With the 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour season about to kick off, it’s time to get your Men's ASP Fantasy Surfing picks in order. Having a difficult time assembling the right men for the battle though? Then let Ross Williams provide some insight into who he think has an advantage in the tricky Snapper lineup and who to put on ice for the time being.
