Round 1 is in the water as I type. Teahupoo is 2 to 3 feet, but on the rise, and the Top 44 is fothing to get out there after a long lay period. The waves look fun, but it’s certainly not the Teahupoo that we want to see.
The question of the event for the past few days has been where’s Slater? Well, last I heard he was on a direct flight to Tahiti two days ago. That comes after a week of appearances at Lakers games and L.A. parties, causing an array of “Where’s Slater” stories in the media. Well, the mystery man is there. Duh!
