RANKINGS FOR THE FINAL SHOWDOWNS

Although Airton Cozzolino has won all but one event this season, with a packed 7-event schedule for 2018, the men will have two discards to apply by the end of the season – so 2016 Champion Matchu Lopes’ continual improving form means that he can still keep the pressure on.

Men
1: Airton Cozzolino (CV / ITA) – Duotone, ION, Red Bull
2: Matchu Lopes (CV / ESP) – Duotone, ION
3: Keahi de Aboitiz (AUS) – Cabrinha
4: Mitu Monteiro (CV) – F-One, Manera
5: Jan Marcos Riveras (DOM) – Duotone, ION

The women have a schedule of six events this season, so there will be one event to discard at the end of the season. Early leaders and wave specialists, Moona Whyte and Jalou Langeree missed the last pure freestyle round in Tarifa. They have some ground to make up on Carla Herrera and Charlotte Carpentier, but it’s likely to be a close call come the final in Australia.

Women
1: Carla Herrera Oria (ESP) – Ocean Rodeo, Brunotti
2: Charlotte Carpentier (FRA) – F-One
3: Moona Whyte (USA) – Cabrinha
4: Jalou Langeree (NL) – Naish, Mystic
5: Ines Correia (PT) – Duotone
