Data and Projections – Margaret River Pro 2017


* These tables have been changed since Italo's official withdrawal, with his data having been removed. Nat Young's data was already in the tables, so it was not added.

Please note also that previous local wildcard surfers Jacob Wilcox, Jay Davies and Jack Robinson have also had their metrics added to allow for any last- minute entries once the trials have been run.

The above two factors have resulted in our tables having models for more than 36 surfers, which is not possible in a WSL contest. Please view the projections accordingly.

We have added the 2017 data to our models, but beware: it's based on a single, sand-bottom, right-hander point-break. It's value may not translate well to the Margaret River Pro conditions.

These projections and statistics use the 2014-2017 contest data. 2017 rookies include some data from previous WSL events where applicable and some data from the 2016 WQS. This means that they have much less reliable modelling and have skewed projections due to their averages being heavily influenced by their small sample size. Many also have no previous data that is specific to this event or its conditions.

MOST MPORTANTLY, don't rely on our projections alone; we suggest that you check the forecast, sort through the particular conditions columns that you deem most relevant and pick out the data that you believe to be of most importance.

Scroll down for overall/WSL data, Fantasy Surfer data, a heat draw and the list of previous winners.

Our full event article will be live soon. Until then, have fun playing with your teams.
