World Bank Issues SOS For Oceans, Backs Alliance

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 27 February, 2012 : - - The World Bank announced on Friday a global alliance to better manage and protect the world's oceans, which are under threat from over-fishing, pollution and climate change. Oceans are the lifeblood of the planet and the global economy, World Bank President Robert Zoellick told a conference on ocean conservation in Singapore. Yet the seas have become overexploited, coastlines badly degraded and reefs under threat from pollution and rising temperatures.

Very rare do we get to see legends of our sport battle it out — especially at the Queen of the coast

So, who do you think took the heat? Tommy won his Titls in 85-86 & 90 and was Slaters biggest influence in his early years.

The first heat of round 3 featured Australian goofyfoots Owen Wright and Matt Wilkinson. Both surfers opened with high-scoring rides. Wilko struck first with an 8.17 and Owen answered with an 8.5 that he backed up with a 6.4.

Wilko would go on to catch two backup waves-- one at the midway point of the heat and the second just as the clock was running out. Either one could have arguably given him the score. Both waves featured committed fin-wofts and were finished as strongly as Owen's 6.4.

TAJ BURROW enjoying life as a surfer at Cloud Break


Part 2/3 of Taj Burrow's epic trip to Fiji, featuring Davies and Chippa.
Video/Edit: Riley Blakeway

Taj began his surfing days in southwest Western Australia at the age of 7. What the Yallingup area lacked in population it certainly made up for in a plethora of ledges, deadly points and powerful beach breaks. With these kind of surroundings and raised as an only child by parents Nancy and Vance, Taj and surfing meshed together well. He pulled on his first contest singlet aged 12 and after only two years he took out the under-18′s division of a local contest and didn’t look back, progressing to regular grommet and junior contests around the world in which he was rarely beaten.
