It seems Rabbit and the boy’s luck may be changing. The Globe Pro Fiji got off to a good start with dreamy conditions at Restaurants and Cloudbreak for Rounds 1, 2 and 3. Standouts have been Chris Ward, CJ Hobgood, Fred Patacchia, Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson and of course Mr. Slates himself.
There’s going to be a Wardo/Hobgood rematch in Round 4 (they had a Round 4 heat at Teahupoo that Hobgood won).
?Chris has been on fire lately and we actually met in this same round in a pretty good grudge match Tahiti too,? said Hobgood. ?I?m sure he?ll want to get me back. He?s surfing well and I?ve been feeling pretty good too. Hopefully we get some waves and it can be a really good match-up.?
