  • World Surf League: Billabong Pro Tahiti Kicks Off at Teahupo'o in Tahiti
  • The seventh stop on WSL Championship, Billabong Pro Tahiti kicked off at Teahupo'o in Tahiti on August 11. Round 1 and 2 ran in small waves at 3-4 foot.
    Defending champion Kelly Slater passed the evnet, because he broke two metatarsal bones in his right foot during free surfing up the point in Jeffreys Bay in July.
    Top seeds such as John John Florence (HAW), Julian Wilson (AUS), Gabriel Medina (BRA) and Matt Wilkinson (AUS) advanced to directly Round 3. But others such as Owen Wright (AUS), Jordy Smith (ZAF), Filipe Toledo (BRA), Mick Fanning (AUS) moved to elimination Round 2.
    Also everyone was surprised what happened to Corona Open J-Bay winner Filipe Toledo. He lost in Heat 7 of Round 1 and Heat 3 of Round 2. Eventually, he left the event early.
