Globe Pro Fiji Off Again On Day 6 But Waves Are ON The Way!

Thursday, May 29, 2008 - TAVARUA, Fiji

The 16 remaining surfers in the Globe Pro Fiji will enjoy their third day off in paradise, today’s competition has been called off citing swell on the horizon.

“We're focused on a great finish to what has already been a really good event and right now we're preparing for a perfect six foot (two metre) high swell to arrive at Cloudbreak around Sunday or Monday, maybe Tuesday,” Contest Director Steve Robertson said. “Let’s face it, these final 16 surfers are in a high pressure situation and Globe want a classic finish. Slater can potentially steal a massive break here, or Fanning. Joel Parkinson, the Hobgoods and Adriano De Souza can really claw their way back into title contention. We want this finish to occur in awesome Cloudbreak conditions!” More Globe Fiji Pro News, Results, Photo's and Videos on Pro Surfing .com

Billabong Pro Tahiti

The waiting period for the Billabong Pro Tahiti – Stop No. 3 of 11 on the 2008 ASP World Tour – starts tomorrow, May 8, 2008. According to contest director and former ASP Top 45 surfer Luke Egan, the action could commence right away.

The Billabong Pro Tahiti has an 11 day window (May 8th-18th) in which to run four full day’s worth of surfing . Though the lefthand reef break is most famous for producing huge, heaving barrels, it is definitely contestable when the waves are smaller. More Billabong Pro Tahiti from Pro Surfing
