J-Bay's Year of the Goofyfooter?

It has been more than 30 years since a goofyfooter has won at Jeffreys Bay, when Australian Mark Occhilupo hacked his way to win on his backhand. Could another Aussie carry the torch this year? Get a glimpse of Matt Wilkinson (AUS) warming up on the long, righthand pointbreak, and decide for yourself.

Wilko isn't the only goofyfooter vying for the win. His fellow Aussie Owen Wright has a few backhand tricks of his own. Watch Wright's warmup at Winkipop to get a taste of his skills, and double-check your Fantasy picks before the Top 34 paddle out.
