Surf News – Teahupoo ASP outlook

Chopes (the hot head) is renowned as one of the heaviest waves in the world. It undoubtably takes the crown for the most feared wave on the ASP world tour.

The Billabong Pro kicks of this weekend and fingers, arms ands legs crossed, it looks as if there’s a swell on the horizon.

The late Andy Irons made a glorious comeback last year and raised the trophy in a much deserved win. This year, who’s on the cards? For me Nike 6.0 star Michel Bourez defiantly has the potential to snag it from the pack. Firstly, he is a Tahitian. Returning to his homeland for the most breath-taking event of the year must push him a little bit more. Secondly, he is not nicknamed ‘The Spartan’ for nothing. He thrives for heavy conditions. When no one else will go Bourez will for sure. In a recent interview with Waves magazine, Bourez said “Teahupoo is why I wanted to be on the tour,” he explained that  “I just put my mind to surfing. Right now, when I get home I might train for a little bit because there’s going to be a long leg so it’s going to be hard. I need to be ready physically.”

Surf News – Kelly Slater = super freak?


Ask yourself a question. In any sport worldwide, can you name a single competitor that has won a world title 20 years on from his first world title? No? Because it’s never happened.

Kelly Slater is the youngest and oldest competitor on the World Tour to ever win a world title-and yes, another 8 in between them.

10 world titles and still going strong. There is no other sportsman/women who has achieved this amount of success in their career. He is a freak, a super freak!

There were big question marks over wherever Kelly would surf in the 2011 World Tour. To be honest, I like the sound of 10 better than 11 and would have probably called it a day and went free-surfing for the rest of my life. But I’m not Kelly, obviously. Maybe the fiercest competitor out there, he seems rattled that he’s currently sitting in a disappointing 3rd!! To most, 3rd would be enough, but only poll position will satisfy the 38-year-old.

With Jeffreys approaching, people are questioning wherever he will even show. I’m guessing he will. I’m guessing he will absolutely smash it and climb back to 1st or 2nd in the world ratings. If he doesn’t,if he goes out early and slips even more places, I believe South Africa will be the last stop on the world tour for Kelly.

Surf News – The upcoming Roxy Pro – Laura Enever chill time

Whilst the men on the ASP are heading over to Jeffreys Bay, SA, the women are getting ready to flock over to Biarritz, France.

The home of European surfing, Biarritz will play host to the ASP Womens Longboard event and the ASP World Title event.

With the world title race officially on, Carrisa Moore seems to be extended the gap between poll position and the rest of the field. If all the elements combine, the young Hawaiian has the chance to bag the title at this early stage in Biarritz.

Tour ripper Laura Enever has been chilling with just one week to go. Taking a little time-out from the World Tour pressures is sometimes needed. Although she has bagged herself a few sweet little waves at the same time-off course!!

Check her out here sucking helium, smashing some waves, and visiting the Nike 6.0 HQ.
