If Ethan advances to the final match, I think he can give Flippy a run for his money.

Ethan doesn't have the twirlybird, but Flippy doesn't have the style.

Hopefully they run when it's not too big like they did last year.

Never been a fan of this format crowning a World Champion but I will have to admit, last years finals day was an exciting day to watch. However, I still think it's stupid as sh!t for a years worth of contest points to come down to a heat or two at Trestles.

What about something like the Superbowl? Ignoring the venue (which you cannot in surfing), coming down to a head to head showdown to crown a season champion is the way of most pro sports. Even the funky college football championship has a pseudo head-to-head system with the BCS.

Of course teams like the 2007 Patriots would say that it sucks and it should only be about the regular season.
