HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 2014 BILLABONG PRO TAHITI

By all accounts, this year’s Billabong Pro in Tahiti was off the hook! Dudes were getting worked left right and centre as the waves were as heavy as has been seen at Teahupo’o in some time. The Teahupo’o wave has a legendary reputation, due to its unique form. The coral reef is extremely shallow and at times sits 50 cm below the surface, whilst the lip of the wave is often as thick as it is tall which means that when someone wipes out on the wave, it’s usually pretty gnarly. That being said the wave consistently offers barrels and is considered a ‘must surf’ spot on any surfing enthusiast’s list. Gabriel Medina from Brazil ended up taking the title, beating off the likes of Kelly Slater and Mick Fanning in the process. Here are a couple must watch highlights from the comp.
