The surf world will descend on the blue lagoons of Tahiti this month to see their favorite top 34 warriors drive through mammoth barrels just 20 inches above razor sharp reef. The wave is called Teahupo'o which tranlates to "place of skulls" and is regareded as one of the gnarliest waves on the planet.
World Tour Ranking: Brazil, Australia, and USA are in the top ten going into this event, but everyone is stoked to see Hawaiian John John Florence back from injury and ready to throw perfect 10 heats. Again.
On August 14th, grab your coconut drink and sarong and tune into The Billabong Pro Tahiti.
