The OWL Pellet challenge is simple: can you create a theoretical Overwatch League team that would place highly in season one using only leftover players?

Eight writers and analysts across the scene have answered the call, pitching their fantasy rosters against each other. Two chose predominantly proven Western players, one blended two of the best Chinese cores, and the rest dove into the insanely talented Korean tier two scene.

With Contenders news in front of us and mid-season signing windows on the horizon, this thought experiment highlights some of the most promising players and potential Contenders teams we’ll be seeing in 2018.

To determine which is the best fantasy team, all of the OWL Pellet teams have been randomly placed into a single-elimination bracket -- votes from the other pundits and the public will decide who progresses through the gauntlet of expert opinion. While all the rosters created could probably compete at an Overwatch League level, this process should give us the best of the rest.

Each winner must have a strong roster capable of outperforming its opponent across the course of Overwatch League Season 1; to aid voters in deciding which side to support, the creators have pitched head-to-head arguments and trash talk -- of various lengths and quality -- aiming to debase their opponents’ reputation and increase their own. Public vote will be used as a tiebreaker so read through the arguments and post your winners below!

Beijing Imperials vs. Detroit Defiance

Argument from Yiska, creator of Beijing Imperials:

  • Yan "creed" Xiao (Support)
  • Wei "jiqiren" Yansong (Tank)
  • Ma "Lateyoung" Tianbin (Flex Tank)
  • Zhang "YangX1aoLg" Zhihao (DPS)
  • Huang "leave" Xin (Flex DPS)
  • He "zhufanjun" Junjian (Flex Support)
  • Qiu "Zod" Zengzhi (Tank)
  • Yang "BBcat" Jiawei (Support)
  • Zhou "LanDo" Zilin (Flex Support)
  • Zhou "S1mpfall" Tigao (DPS)
  • Ou "Eileen" Yiliang (DPS)
  • Zheng "Shy" Yangjie (Flex DPS)
  • Jeong "ArHaN" Weon-hyeop (Pet)

Upon release of my roster, all the other OWL Pellets participants should've immediately realised they fucked up. Miraculous Youngsters is the loophole and should've by all means been banned from the competition just like RunAway was, no less because they are a better team with more individual talent. Sideshow was flabbergasted at his oversight as he simply assumed they'd all be too young but I was able to confirm that only zhufanjhun & S1mpfall won't be of age for the beginning of the season, but the former will be 18 very soon.

Fellow competitors, you can twist and turn, tell mommy it's not fair, and squeal but if you don't do your homework, you can't go out to play. You dribblers have enslaved yourselves to your own dogmatisms of "Koreans have to be the best" and "If I praise Western pro players they will like me and give me a career" without looking past those models and actually trying to win. While you fellate Koreans & (worse yet) Westerners, I suckle the godly ambrosia directly out of victory's voluptuous bosom.

Now undoubtedly I will be confronted by terrible attempts at analysis, pointing out Miraculous Youngster’s Nexus Cup early exit and I wish you nincompoops would. You can sit next to mykL when he learns about apples-to-oranges comparisons and most importantly recency bias. The fact that MY quit Nexus Cup without playing out all their games and doing badly in groups does nothing to my argument, because the circumstances of their break up and the terrible conditions in the unregulated field of China are widely known. Getting them under the OWL umbrella would airlift them out of these circumstances and would breath new life into a top 5 team in the world. Their trophy case is all I need to shut those counter points down.

Miraculous Youngster has two OWPS titles under their belt and could've had three without the ban of Leave in the OWPS Spring. Most importantly, they also won Nexus Cup against Korean opposition like RunAway, Kongdoo Uncia & NC Foxes. I've already empirically proven in my opening piece that once winning cores will win again if they don't break up and they've been augmented sufficiently. With the addition of the 1246 core, who are probably all big game players, bringing their A-Game in the playoffs and who complement the Miraculous Youngsters core well, the prerequisites for a comeback have all been set and crushing those unproven APEX Challenger cores and mid tier Korean teams is inevitable.

Now I'm at mercy of the dreadful decisions making of my fellow contestants as proven by their trash rosters they've dared to throw into the ring. I want them to consider this: If you thought the Rogue core could've done well given better circumstances and a couple of roster changes in Contenders, you will have to consider this true for Miraculous Youngsters. They were just as dominant as Rogue domestically but also brought the fight to the international competition when their circumstances were less screwed up. They've won Nexus Cup Summer curb stomping RunAway 2-0 and 4-0 in the finals. They brought the new and improved Lunatic Hai, now known as Seoul Dynasty (the presumed best team in the world) within five payload metres of a bo5 win at Seoul Cup. Because this is about the performance for the entire season, consider that Miraculous Youngster has yet to underperform without an apparent and entirely preventable reason and when they had all their wits about them, they crushed OWPS Summer going 11-0 in round robin and clean in the playoffs, losing only 8 maps in 14 best of serieses. This team is build for the Overwatch League format. You should be convinced by now that Shanghai Dragons should've signed them on and should be appalled that they robbed us of a top 5 team in the League. Keep in mind, the Beijing Imperials also field a good chunk of the second best Chinese performer in 1246 and those would only help to improve those rosters and would help to provide meta stability much like the old Kongdoo Panthera core is currently doing to London Spitfire while the former GC Busan players try to find their way in this meta. Because of the respective profiles of those teams, it will be incredibly difficult to catch them off guard in any meta.

Expect others to say that both of those teams, the best Chinese rosters in the history of Overwatch mind you, have now broken up because they weren’t good enough or because there were internal conflicts, not because there have been systematic issues in the Chinese system going as deep as the games distributor in China. With professionalizing this process and Blizzard’s thorough vetting, how likely do you think this will occur under approved leadership by Blizzard, especially now that Philly’s actions have surely increased the checking process? You know you got a winner here.

Now in regards to my opponent, I don't want to drag him through the mud too harshly as I think that he presented the second most respectable roster in the competition. Make no mistake, my dear reader or fellow participant, you are witnessing the final here. Volamel abided by the core of four, brought solid diversity, did his research but unfortunately couldn't find a base that championships have previously been built on.

X6 got 5-6th and 7-8th in APEX Season 3 and 4 respectively. In both seasons they dodged the biggest bullets and made it exactly as far as you would expect a Korean tier 2 team to, never coming close to upsetting any of the big teams other than a heavily slumping RunAway. They're unfamiliar with round robin preparation and they aren't playoff performers. Their biggest achievements are still APEX Challenger wins and those don't hold up to OWPS.

They've looked strong in the recent Nexus Cup, but like mentioned before I urge everyone not to overvalue the most recent results just because your memory is build to give it the most weight. Even if they were to win it, the field of competitors simply isn’t comparable to OWL teams and certainly much weaker than the summers edition of the event, propped up by underaged talent. It’s a grave logical error to equate Korea dominating China in that tournament to mean that x6 would be an overall stronger team than normally functioning MY as Korea was doing that to China at the last Nexus Cup too, but Miraculous Youngsters won with relative ease. Some teams stand tall above their region, otherwise MY’s & EnVyUs’ victory wouldn’t be explainable. Most importantly, if you argue here that x6 potential win was significant, half of the other Pellets teams instantly lose by virtue of having cores that did way worse. Bring on the logical inconsistency or crown the Detroit Defiance as the winner of OW Pellets here and now. Either way I’d be here to pay for matching hypocrite tattoos on any part of the face.

Volamel’s additions are definitely nothing to scoff at on paper. I think it's fair to say that SASIN, Nenne, Sayaplayer and Kris could be aspirant heirs to the throne in Korea as the Kings of old are playing in Overwatch League. I have doubts about the approach of handpicking the best statistical individual players and expecting them to form a cohesive unit. I looked at how playstyles slotted together and how synergies are created more than individual excellence and still the Beijing Imperials have plenty of that.

I’ve provided evidence that there has not been set any precedent that formerly successful teams have any other breaking points than social, environmental or contractual components. I’ve provided an environment where these issues won’t arise and thus there is no reason to believe that we know what the expiration dates are on victories in Overwatch. I’ve further improved a great core with solid additions like LanDo and Zod and down the line Shy, S1mpfall and Eileen and have left open that another good core might bridge over all meta inconsistencies with the help of absolute nutters like Leave and Lateyoung. Star power doesn’t matter on a bench and the Imperials are already very versatile in all the right places.

I ask you to think about this probabilistically, what has a higher chance to succeed? A world class level roster that has already shown they can hang with the best teams in the world and have been further improved, or a wild bunch that is build on a shaky tier 2 ground? Would you choose to build your villa on brittle foundation and grade A bricks without plaster? Get blown away by the wolf, piggy.

Now one might wonder why I’ve been so fair and nice towards my opponent, Volamel & his Detroit Dumpster Fires. He may tell you that we talked about either of us picking the MY core if the other one doesn't. To this I say: “Too bad, sucka!” It isn’t therefore that I feel bad for obliterating him here, I just feel indebted to him for providing me with a smoking gun to Beijing Imperials’ tournament victory.

And with this, I rest my case in providing a sound recording of my opponent, Volamel, arguing that the Beijing Imperials should be winning OW Pellets.

Argument from Volamel, creator of Detroit Defiance:

  • Ha "Sayaplayer" Jung Woo (DPS)
  • Cheon “Ado” Ki-hyun (DPS)
  • Jeong “Nenne” Yeon-Kwan (DPS)
  • Kim "GodsB" Kyeong-bo (DPS)
  • Jeong "NoSmite" Da-un (Tank)
  • Yong-ha "Brek" Son (Tank)
  • Choi "ChoiHyoBin" Hyo-bin (Tank)
  • Song “SASIN” Sang-hyeon (Flex)
  • Se-yong "DNCE" Kim (Support)
  • Choi "Kris" Jun Soo (Support)
  • Min "GILY" Joon-ho (Support)
  • Yoon "BeBe" Hui-chang (Support)

Miraculous Youngster (MY). A name that once struck fear in the hearts of young Overwatch players, but with all time at the top, you're bound to fall.

Bringing home titles, taking Lunatic-Hai with their new additions to game 5, winning OWPS Grand Finals. These memories bounce back and forth in the echo chamber of what could have been, but as we set down our rose tinted glasses, we start to see a more full and clear picture of what MY have become. China and MY in particular, thrive when they are allowed to play “their” style. If MY cannot hang in this metagame, they’d undoubtedly find “their” style eventually, but sadly, the team has disbanded.

We won’t get to see MY’s answer to or average performance in the Mercy metagame and I can only judge them off of their recent performances, which leave much to be desired. Now, that can be partially excused. I completely understand that outside pressure and stress may have played a role in MY’s poor performance in the Nexus Cup Annual Finals. That said, from what we did see was a severe under performance from what was the best team in China. So much so, that I’d wager that Vici Gaming - and possibly even Lucky Future - might give MY a run for their money as the best team in China, currently.

That said, MY is one of the only teams to beat a South Korean team to win an event. No one said this was going to be an easy game. However, there is a little tournament that is ongoing called “the Nexus Cup Annual Finals.” So far, seven of the Detroit Defiance have made it to the round of 8, six of which are on the winner’s side of the bracket. I can’t say the same for the Beijing Imperials.

MY as a team can pull off a standard dive composition well enough, but maps starting to diversify in their own sub-metagame, where can MY find their footing? If the Junkertown was too hot for MY to handle, what happens when Blizzard World hits the map pool or any new map for that matter?

In typical “tortoise and the hare” fashion, the Beijing Imperials have gone ahead and added Arhan as a “team mascot” of sorts. “Meme dreams” aside, I’ve recruited 12 consistent and flexible players and they’ve got 13 (don’t ask me why the team pet is listed on the starting roster) incredibly talented, but inconsistent players. Yes, MY have taken what has become the Seoul Dynasty to game 5, but if we follow that logic the core of my team (X6-Gaming) beat Lunatic-Hai 2-1 to qualify for Nexus Cup 2017 - Summer. All of the Detroit Defiance have a proven track record of playing up to their opponents and winning consistently upsetting the system.

To end I’ve got just one question for the voters, pundits, and Yiska himself;


Sejong Greats vs. Toronto Tyrants

Argument from Sideshow, creator of the Sejong Greats:

  • Lee ”Jecse” Seung-Soo (Support)
  • Park ”iDK” Ho-Jin (Support)
  • Park ”Bazzi” Jun-Ki (Flex Support)
  • Kim ”Rapel” Jun-Geun (Flex Support)
  • Lee ”fearless” Eui-Seok (Tank)
  • Bong ”republic” Geung-chan (Tank)
  • Seo ”daco” Dong-Hyung (Offtank)
  • Bae ”diem” Min-Seong (Flex)
  • Cheon ”Ado” Ki-Hyun (Flex DPS)
  • Song ”SASIN” Sang-Hyeon (Flex DPS)
  • Lee ”Guard” Hee-Dong (DPS)
  • Park ”Architect” Min-Ho (Substitute Flex DPS)

As shown in Challengers and Nexus Cup, Element Mystic are a powerful new team with huge potential. Where they've been held back in the past by lack of resources and some missing pieces, Sejong Greats would fill all those holes to create a masterpiece of a team.

iDK and Bazzi are the perfect supports to complement the Greats and become greats themselves; both players have been legitimate power players from the support position, carrying their teams through fights in different ways. The tank line would also sweep away any in the OWL Pellet cup, pairing upcoming stars fearless and daco -- already feared in the Korean and Pacific region -- with republic who has been so strong individually in OPC.

diem is another star player, a Tracer whose performances have allowed Ardeont to win in the Pacific Championship with incredible dominance. Other than the underage Decay, there is no free agent on Tracer better than this star.

Once we get to flex DPS players you can see that the star power keeps going and would fit perfectly into the team. Architect is a monster, carrying X6 to a recent victory after their lacklustre performances throughout 2017 -- though he must sit on the bench til March, this is only as long as Harsha's own San Francisco Shock has Sinatraa and Super on the bench until. Clearly he feels there is no issue with having superstars enter in the lategame.

Sejong Greats would easily make playoffs in Overwatch League Season 1 as another great Korean team, while Harsha's Frankenstein roster should stay in Taiwan playing 3v3 tournaments. Sejong Greats may not have the name value, but each player is a real diamond in the rough, poised to become the next name on everybody's lips once the chants of the West have faded into hopelessness.

The issues with Harsha's roster are numerous. As with every aKm team you cannot hotswap between Tracer-Genji and Tracer-Soldier or other such similar compositions without changing map and roster. It's a brutal flaw that makes the team terribly readable, despite the star power on double hitscan dps. It's clear from Rogue's late fall that this style can be countered hard.

Void is the team's star tank player, the anchor for the teamwork and teamfighting abilities, and he's speaking Korean. Without mentioning the vast playstyle differences between the other Western tanks, your best offtank and pivotal D.Va can't speak English! He's also probably off getting busy with his girl rather than scrimming, if the reports from London Spitfire are to be believed.

Finally, there is no pre-existent core and team synergy would be a mess. This is the biggest problem; the Toronto Tyrants don't have an overwhelming amount of individual skill, though the players are good, and crucially they would have to build their strategy, teamwork, and calling structure from the ground up. It would take them half the season to pull themselves together, by which time Architect would be tearing up the league as one of the new best flex DPS talents.

Argument from Harsha, creator of Toronto Tyrants:

  • Ha "Sayaplayer" Jeong-woo (DPS)
  • Dylan "aKm" Bignet (DPS)
  • Robert "Shadder2k" Mocanu (DPS)
  • Kang "Void" Jun-woo (Flex)
  • Joonas "zappis" Alakurtti (Flex)
  • Tiago "Mowzassa" Rodrigues (Tank)
  • Russell "FCTFCTN" Campbell (Tank)
  • Randal "Roolf" Stark (Support)
  • Luis "Greyy" Perestrelo (Support)
  • Adam "Adam" Eckel (Support)

You shouldn't need a reason to root for the Toronto Tyrants outside of the matchup, given the other team is led by Sideshow who felt the need to add "Gaming" to his Twitter handle, but I'll give you a few anyways.

Leaving Architect—perhaps the most talented player on the roster, yet still 17—aside, Sideshow chose to invest in mostly rising talent rather than proven players who have performed on the biggest stage. The Sejong Greats embody this philosophy entirely, drawing most players from a team that won OPC and another that took home APEX Challengers. Neither tournament serves as a legitimate litmus test when it comes to skill, and there is no guarantee that putting these teams together should lead to a functional unit when their previous teams were not necessarily proven as I outlined.

SASIN should be granted his due as a standout talent, and iDK is legitimately an incredible support player, but these two alone should not hold up to the starpower coming from the Toronto Tyrants. In terms of pure skill, the Tyrants win out, and while the Greats do certainly have quite a bit of potential, I think that pitting the two against each other at this point in time would lead to a Canadian victory.

Amsterdam Blaze vs. Gangnam Magpies

Argument from Pasch, creator of Amsterdam Blaze:

  • Tuomo "Davin" Leppänen (DPS)
  • Dylan "aKm" Bignet (DPS)
  • Mads "fischer" Jehg (Flex DPS)
  • Nicolas "NiCO" Moret (Flex)
  • Joonas "zappis" Alakurtti (Flex Tank)
  • Russell "FCTFCTN" Campbell (Tank)
  • Adam "Adam" Eckel (Support)
  • Randal "Roolf" Stark (Flex Support)
  • Luis "Greyy" Perestrelo (Substitute Flex Support)

The Gangnam Magpies' lineup is built on the expectation that Recry can reliably carry his team, which is an inherently dangerous and unsubstantial foundation. The team lacks a dominant main tank player, or at least one whose skill has been recently and fairly tested in the upper tiers of Overwatch competition. It is unknown how well this lineup could incorporate Orisa.

Recry and Sayaplayer are incredibly talented, but I would put aKm and Davin up against them any day of the week. Similarly, I think Roolf's Zenyatta outshines Lucid's. As we saw at pre-season, Zenyattas, Tracers, and Widowmakers increasingly defined each team's success, and the Blaze has an incredibly strong Zenyatta and an incredibly strong Tracer, if nothing else. The Magpies don't stand a chance.

Argument from RadoN, creator of Gangnam Magpies:

  • Jeong "Recry" Taek-hyun (DPS)
  • Ha "Sayaplayer" Jung Woo (DPS)
  • Kang "Void" Jun-woo (Offtank)
  • Jeong "NoSmite" Da-un (Tank)
  • Lee "Panker" Byung-ho (Tank)
  • Yoo "Lucid" Jun-seo (Flex Support)
  • Choi "Kris" Jun Soo (Support)
  • Jeong “ArhaN” Weon-hyeop (Substitute DPS)
  • Jang “Decay” Gui-un (Substitute DPS)
  • Lee “Twilight” Joo Seok (Substitute Flex Support)
  • Choi “Hoon” Jae Hoon (Substitute Offtank)
  • Se-yong "DNCE" Kim (Substitute Flex)
  • "Gambler" (Coach)
  • "Bubbly" (Coach)

While Pasch may have me beaten in terms of branding, she made a crucial mistake when forming her roster. Below, you can see a picture of what all the passports of my players and coaches look like.

Korean passport

That's right, they are all Korean! Meanwhile, she's selected a bunch of Europeans and even included two North American players. Now don't get me wrong, some of those guys can play Overwatch, and have been known to get wins against other fellow non-Koreans. However, they have neither the offline experience, nor the ease and clarity of communication that comes with players speaking in their native language. Additionally, with Recry and/or ArHaN starting, Gangnam Magpies have a chance of having the best player on the server and carry against any team. aKm is incredibly talented and consistent player, but he has not shown the ability to take over a game to the same degree as the former Afreeca Freecs duo.

Busan Beach Boys vs. San Diego Surf

Argument from Barroi, creator of Busan Beach Boys:

  • Cho “Hyeonu” Hyeon-woo (Support – Mercy/Lucio)
  • Kim “Fuze” Tae Hoon (Support – Lucio/Mercy)
  • Lee “Twilight” Joo Seok (Support – Zen/Sombra/Ana – aggressive)
  • Kim “DNCE” Se-Yong (Flex – Flex-Support/Off-Tank)
  • Bong “Republic” Geun-chan (Tank – Winston/Rein – aggressive)
  • Gye “rOar” Chang-hoon (Tank – Winston/Rein – passive)
  • Song “SASIN” Sang-Hyeon (Flex – Off-Tank/Projectile DPS – aggressive)
  • Cheon “Ado” Ki-Hyun (DPS – Genji/Tracer – passive)
  • Ha “Sayaplayer“ Jung Woo (DPS – Hitscan – aggressive)
  • Jeong “Recry” Taek-Hyun (DPS – Hitscan – passive)
  • Cho “Bubbly” Yoon-ho (Mascot)
  • Cho “yy0shi” Young Tae (Mascot)

For Beach Boys it is easy to surf. Similarly the Busan Beach Boys will have an easy ride when going up against San Diego Surf. Why you ask? because this team is like a bunch of cool looking water scrambled together to create a wave. But if you take a closer look it totally lacks coherence, it is a wave that will break before it started to build up.

My approach when creating a team is to look at the individual players and build a team that fits together nicely. I looked at all the available ingredients, took some, left others out and cooked a fine meal. Meanwhile the analogy for the Surf roster would be, that you took a Burger and a Pizza, wrapped the Pizza around the Burger, poured chocolate over it and put a bunch of Cherries on top. You might like all the ingredients, but by putting them all together you actually just create a huge pile of red-dotted brown shit.

Let’s start of lightly and look at the core: Bazzi, eVo and Shubil from Seven. Seven definitely had their successes and on first look is not an unreasonable pick up. But if you strain your eyes a bit you will quickly see, that this team is being hard-carried by Bazzi.

To be completely honest here, I think he might be one of the best Flex-Supports in the world, had I looked at the team and him a bit more carefully I would have definitely picked him up myself, the kid is a beast. The problem is he is the only beast. With the exception of Ttuba and of course Bazzi, literally every other player has a highly negative PTK. What does that mean? It means that even though their stats look fine, they are probably boosted because of some other factors. In this instance the factor is Bazzi.

eVo and especially Shubil won’t contribute much to the team, once the Surf roster would perform badly the Tank line would quickly be identified as the biggest issue.

Speaking of Tanks let's look at Hoon. He is a below average Off-Tank who performed fine when given literally all the resources on his team. Even then he never was great and this brings me to the initial point of lacking coherence. Hoon, Sayaplayer, ArHan (you could argue his Genji is not), GodsB and Bazzi are all “high-resource” players, hell even Brek’s Reinhardt is resource demanding. All 5/6 of them have an aggressive playstyle that brings huge amounts of deaths with them.

I wonder where a team that for the biggest part consists of high-resource players gets all their resources from. You can’t have everybody make crazy plays, if they did they would just one by one run into the enemy team completely getting wrecked. And each one of them would wonder why there was no support from their team. You could say there are no philosophical differences between those players, even though people might claim there are. This approach might work for a couple of games, but it is destined to fail horribly.

Meanwhile the Busan Beach Boys build on coherence opposed to being unable to even spell the word. BBB even has two mascots to ensure long-term high spirits in the team. That said, you could argue that ArHan also has the physical properties of being a “Moon Face Mascot”, others might even consider keeping him as a pet.

Argument from Elbion, creator of San Diego Surf:

  • Ha "Sayaplayer" Jung Woo (DPS)
  • Kim "GodsB" Kyeong-bo (DPS)
  • Jeong “ArhaN” Weon-hyeop (DPS)
  • Lee "Evo" Yu-seok (Tank)
  • Bang "Shubil" Min-jun (Flex Tank)
  • Song "Brek" Yong-ha (Tank)
  • Choi “Hoon” Jae Hoon (Flex)
  • Park "Bazzi" Jun-Ki (Flex Support)
  • Yoon "BeBe" Hui-chang (Support)
  • Song "Quatermain" Ji-Hoon (Support)

Well Lord Barroi, it’s come to this. My roster versus, ugh, yours. I, and the entire Overwatch community, owe you so much for your work at Winston’s Lab. But I must destroy you.

We only agree on three things. That versatile rosters are important, Sayaplayer is quite good at the game, and we both are aware of the strength of our Korean overlords.

You wanted a playmaking support, and chose Twilight. A player who is so great that he hasn’t been picked up by a team in six months. I have Bazzi, a support who during that time has been fragging out and carrying his team. He’s backed up by Quatermain, a Lucio only second to Tobi, whereas you’ve selected Fuze.

Your tank line will get run over by the aggressive play of Evo and Shubil. Shubil is actually a dedicated flex-tank, and is one of the most effective D.Va’s in the world. Unlike Sasin. And my tank-bench runs deep, with Brek and Hoon brining more firepower than your starting lineup.

For some bizarre reason you decided to put Sayaplayer on the bench, however. I’m starting him, alongside a far superior DPS player GodsB. The insane flexibility between the two will allow whatever composition we want. Sayaplayer will demolish Ado in the Tracer duel, and GodsB will remind you what a real Soldier 76 player looks like.

Oh, and your mascots? I promise you those beach boys can’t swim very long. Hope you’re ready to drown in the Surf.
