Billabong Pro Tahiti!
Waiting period starts today. Forecast looking opposite of last year's. Expect them to run long days in crap surf.
Should be interesting watching chest high barrels breaking in 4" of water

No harm no foul man! More people need to be watching these things IMO.

For those doing the Fantasy Surfer thing, here's my team:
Had to switch out Jezza for the Spartan because I would have had 3 surfers in the last heat of Round 1. I may switch out Freddy for Ricardo Dos Santos last minute too.

Thanks for posting these guys! I loved watching the US Open in Huntington even though the waves weren't much better than here in Charleston during the event.
Expecting a little better for this event.

smaller surf forecasted so i'm leaning toward more versatile guys that can get in the barrel and throw big airs

They're better than Huntington.... not good for Chopes, though. Forecast looks pretty dismal--must have blown their load and cashed in all their karma for last year's event.
