Although he only competed in the last two events of last year’s season, DP’s Will Reichel is considered one of the teams strongest surfers in any conditions. Will is looking forward to competing in all the contests on this year’s schedule so that he can make a big jump upwards on the year-end ratings list. Will has recently used his local experience of surfing right pointbreaks to rip the epic right points of Punta Mango and Punta Roca in El Salvador.
