Bracing for the Billabong Pro in Tahiti

It’s that time of year again, when the world’s best surfers take on the world’s heaviest wave in what is undoubtedly the best surfing show on earth: The Billabong Pro Tahiti. This year, three-time winner Kelly Slater is locked in another world title race with defending Billabong Pro champion Mick Fanning. But these two will certainly have their hands full with the likes of John John Florence, Joel Parkinson, Jordy Smith, and the brothers Hobgood, to name a few.
