“The Billabong Pro Tahiti got underway today in the biggest surf of the season as the world’s best battled 10-15 ft waves at Teahupoo for Round 1 and the opening two heats of Round 2. The seventh stop on the 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour (WCT) saw a thrilling day of competition as top seeds soared and even the most knowledgable of surfers took some floggings at one of the world’s most dangerous waves.”- Magic Seaweed
