WSL commentator Mitchell Salazar joins the podcast to talk about the all-new Vissla Shaper Rankings. Dave and Mitch introduce the new rankings that celebrate and measure the shapers who build boards for the Championship Tour surfers. They share the inspiration for the rankings and then break down its rules and scoring system. They share their top three shaper observations for the tour, discuss the surfer-shaper pairings they're excited to watch at Pipeline and Sunset, and then make their bold predictions for which shaper will take the crown.
