Vissla CT Shaper Rankings 2023

Vissla CT Shaper Rankings 2023 WSL Shapers Cup

Say what you will about World Surf League (WSL) choices regarding World Championship Tour (WCT) locations and waiting periods, as they have made one very smart decision for the 2023 season. They have partnered up with one of the last remaining “core” surf brands to honor the individuals who provide the craft that CT pros ride to podium finishes.

The VISSLA CT Shaper Rankings 2023 is an inaugural “competition” that pits some of the world’s top high-performance surfboard shapers against one another. There are 18 shapers who provide boards for all CT competitors and their rankings are represented via a leaderboard that tracks the performance of men’s and women’s CT surfers as they progress through each event. Rankings count Quarterfinal-or-better finishes at each of the ten CT stops of the season. The winning high-performance shaper will be determined by the end of the 10-stop CT, prior to the Rip Curl WSL Finals.

This platform is long overdue. Prior to 2023, the best that a shaper could hope for was a visible sticker and shoutout when their sponsored rider was interviewed by Rosy Hodge. The VISSLA CT Shaper Rankings now shine a much-deserved spotlight on master-craftsmen who provide equipment to the WCT elite. In this ongoing article, Action Sports Betting will update shaper rankings as they are adjusted through the season. In addition, we will provide betting odds on the Top 5 shapers in contention for the title. Bookmark this page and check back as each event concludes!

Current VISSLA CT Shapers Rankings Odds to Win

After Stop 6 (Surf Ranch Pro) on the WCT

Sharp Eye Surfboards: 4/5 Odds (55.6% Probability)

Filipe Toledo rides for Sharp Eye. He was expected to win the Surf Ranch Pro, but Griffin Colapinto spoiled that ambition which is why Sharp Eye and Mayhem now have the same odds to win the CT Shapers Rankings. Toledo will likely get a Quarterfinal-or-better finish at the VIVO Rio Pro and at the Corona Open J Bay.

Mayhem Surfboards: 4/5 Odds (55.6% Probability)

As we expected, Mayhem rider Griffin Colapinto is already en route to closing out the year strong. He just won the Surf Ranch Pro, and now sits at the No,1 spot in the world. Mayhem’s Carissa Moore has also done the same. Furthermore, we have picked Yago Dora for a surprise win at the VIVO Rio Pro. Meanwhile, Caroline Marks same in second at the Surf Ranch Pro and has her sights set on the trip to Lower Trestles in September.

DHD Surfboards: 6/5 Odds (45.5% Probability)

DHD’s stranglehold on the VISSLA CT Shapers Rankings loosened up after the Surf Ranch Pro. On the men’s side, only Ethan Ewing is expected to get a good result for the remainder of the events, with J Bay being his best shot at a Quarterfinal-or-better finish. Meanwhile, Molly Picklum’s campaign seems to be slowing down.

Pyzel Surfboards: 6/5 Odds (45.5% Probability)

Pyzel has some ground to cover. However, John John Florence and Tyler Wright both ride for Pyzel. JJF will probably get a Quarterfinal-or-better finish at J Bay and is expected to win the Tahiti Pro. We’ve picked Wright to win the Surf City El Salvador Pro and perform well at both J Bay and Tahiti. Look for Pyzel to rise fast and quite possibly win this thing.

Channel Islands Surfboards: 9/1 Odds (10% Probability)

The only CT relevant surfer Britt Merrick has left is No.1 ranked Joao Chianca. However, we’re convinced that his 2023 season momentum is over as we glide into the back-half of the Tour. All of Channel Islands’ eggs for the VISSLA CT Shapers Rankings are in one basket, which makes them the biggest long shot of this (and next) season.
