ASP Top 45 Ratings Shake-Up After Hang Loose Pro

After the Hang Loose Santa Catarina Pro the Top 45 ASP ratings have shaken up a bit. With the big win in Brazil Bede Durbidge has catapulted himself from 4th to 2nd, jumping past fellow Aussies Joel Parkinson and Taj Burrow in the battle for 2nd place. C.J. Hobgood moved up a spot and is now sitting in 5th, just ahead of Adriano de Souza whose injury kept him from Brazil. Jeremy Flores has also fought his way back into the top 10 with his 2nd place finish at the Hang Loose Pro. Other big movers include Fred Patacchia, who took an equal 3rd, and Dayyan Neve, who came away with an equal 9th. With only the Billabong Pipeline Masters left, things are going to get very interesting for those looking to claw their way back on tour in ’09.
