New Zealand’s great CT hope. Ricardo Christie’s powerful regularfoot approach is crisp and clean, his smooth, on-rail style polished yet punctuated by hyper-modern moves above the lip. The first NZ surfer to make the tour since Maz Quinn made his run in 2001, Christie just barely caught the CT train in 2015 joining at the back of the pack at number 36. After an impressive performance during the 2014 Hawaiian leg (with a particularly beautiful Round 3 wave at the Vans World Cup that landed him a 9.03), Christie made a big charge on the World Tour. After a heavy year on the tour, the lanky Kiwi ultimately got cut as 2016 dawned.
