UDPATE MARCH 20
Omer and the Aussies
First, a shout out to Own Wright on his win at the real life Snapper Rocks event. He absolutely destroyed it. Congrats!
Now on to YR Surfing Virtual World Tour... the Snapper Rocks Pro. We are about to hit the 12,000 competitors mark for the event. Huge start for this year's world tour. Thank you all for competing. Now, let's see how you end up against your friends and the world! Remember, for a chance to win some YRC post your best screenshots on this thread. Let's get into the riders...
In true fashion, Omer_Cohen
is sitting in the driver seat as we head into the last stretch of the event. With a week left in the contest window, FORAHAULE
has time to attack and jump back into the first place spot. We think he has what it takes to make it possible. We wish them both good luck as we see the light at the end of the tunnel.
We've decided to give this week's Shout Outs to the TOP FIVE AUSTRALIANS
that are supporting YouRiding by wearing the comp rashguards. We challenge them all to move up the leaderboard 10 spots before the end of the comp window. If each one of them can pull it off, and email me (mannyatyouridingdotcom
), we'll line up 1,000 YRC to each of them that do. Do you think they can do it?
We start off with Beanbags
who's currently in 563rd place and a respectable 67,023. No frills on his avatar here. YR Surfboard basic white with a white jersey and black trunks. We wonder if that's how it is real life. Cool, calm, collected. Shredding under the radar. Beanbags
holding it down for the island nation.
is next in the rankings that's sporting the event jersey. Looks like his flying up the radar as well but AaronGreen
opted for the YR Advanced model. Mellow but with a little zip in his style. He's holding steady at 1062rd place with 61,720 points. He's about one amazing maneuver away from Beanbags
. We'll find out in a week, if he was able to get that last move in and take over that best Aussie spot. Good luck.
Currently in that 1806th spot is skippatherippa
. Styling with the blue event jersey and the sick Cabianca Medina board, the bearded one can easily skip up the rankings with less than 100 points more. You got this brotha.
. 2,584th place with 50,476 points. This guy is in the top 20 percentile in the rankings. Solid showing so far. But if you look at the scores, he's only 13 points from hopping up three spots on the leaderboard. We're stoked he's in the blue jersey representing.
Big style points across the board goes to Gmac
. Even though he's currently 3,248th place with 46,681 points, he still looks like he's ready to dominate! His YR Pro Series Parker Coffin Pro board and matching red jersey look sick with his Quicksilver Highline Zipperless Green Flash wetsuit underneath. Again, just a few points separtates him from jumping up the rankings a least 10 spots!
The Australians are coming out in full force and are spread out across the leaderboard. They've got the style points down. But can they wind up and keep climbing up the rankings before the end of the comp window? We say yes. They have a reputation to protect as Aussie surfers.
Throw your best screen shots on the thread and expect another update tomorrow.
