Check out a free surf sesh of the worlds best surfers at Teahupoo the otehr day, Josh Kerr was a stand out.
Unless you live at somewhere like Pipe, Snapper or Keramas your probably
like us and for 350 days of the year your local break is just ok. But
every now and then when all the elements align your local will turn on and
resemble a mini version of a Munduka, Trestles or somewhere similar . You
know the calls, "man it was like Snapper out there only reverse", "That
section was so like Chopes" haha. It doesn't happen that often, but when
it does you can get caught dreaming your somewhere else. Here's Vico Rat
Pack team rider Mark "Grubby' Hill at his local carpark throwing up a
pretty good impersonation of Snapper on day of the year so far...replace
the wettie and hood and with boards your anywhere you wanna be.
Jay Davies wafting that backhand.'
Check out Josh Kerr's Tahiti quiver, it consists of a range of 5'9 - 6'2 SLAYER models, a couple JOKERR models and a couple of 6'6 TRAVELER models for the big days. with a big swell coming it looks like they will all get a run.
Josh rode a 6'0 SLAYER shaped by Rusty P in his first heat.
Sunday arvo lay day in tahiti.....place is the best
Fresh Tuna every day along with endless fresh fruit and food is hard to take.
With Rd 1 done, and event directors looking froward to the swell later next week, possibly around Thurs / Friday, with some calling Saturday as the biggest they have ever seen on a forecast for Teahupoo..?????? WOWSERS!!
Check out Paul Fishers take on the US Open....
Josh Kerr surfed an amazing heat today, but narrowly got defeated in the final minutes of the heat. He will now face Bede Durbidge in round 2, when competition resumes.
A Tahitian ceremony was held today for Andy Irons, a place he will be truly missed.
