• Billabong Pro Tahiti- Day 1

The event kicked off at about 10am local time here this morning in Tahiti. Although the weather started a bit weary and waves started out small conditions improved in the second part of the day.

Swell started to pick up into the afternoon and southeast trades groomed the lineup. Notable performances came from Joel Parkinson with a round one win, Italo Ferriera advancing to round 3 and Ethan Ewing upsetting Filipe Toledo in round 2.

Tomorrow will look to have a starting time at 7am and heats should run all day long with better swell height and direction than today. Tune in for all of the action!
