Billabong Pro is a go!

Things should be kicking off with round 1 of the Billabong Pro Tahiti today. With waves in the 4-6ft range with bigger sets in the afternoon there will be plenty of contestable surf. As is always the case in Tahiti, expect plenty of Tumbos! Our favorites going into the event are: Kelly Slater, John John Florence, Gabriel Medina and Jordy Smith. Those are our picks for the semifinals. But, you can never be sure what will happen and that is what makes surfing so fun! Tune in and our picks for 1st round are in bold below!
