Jeff Mull: Teahupoo has gained a reputation for handing out some of the world’s best barrels and worst beatings—often you’ll find both in the same session. If watching the upcoming Billabong Pro Tahiti inspires you to test yourself at the ferocious wave, we recommend reading the following words of advice from local expert Michel Bourez first. If you’re still chomping at the bit, make sure both your SURFER subscription and life insurance policy have been renewed before you book your flight.

   

ASP WCT No. 1 Mick Fanning Readies for Billabong Pro Tahiti, Early Swell Forecast but just 5 feet SSW. Tons of Hawaii talent for trials starting 8/11-8/14

TEAHUPO’O, Taiarapu/Tahiti (Saturday, August 11, 2012) – The world’s best surfers are converging on the planet’s heaviest lefthander next week for Stop No. 5 of 10 on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour, the Billabong Pro Tahiti, to be held from August 16 – 27, 2012 at the infamous South Pacific reef pass of Teahupo’o.

Following last year’s historic installment of the event, ultimately won by reigning 11-time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater (USA), 40, and featuring a barrier-breaking tow-in session dubbed ‘Code Red’, the surfing world eagerly anticipates the return of this season’s Billabong Pro Tahiti and the impact it will have on the 2012 ASP World Title race.

Surf News, 10 August, 2012 : The Association of Surfing Professionals 6-Star Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro returned to Oceanside Pier for day two of competition and saw a day of dominant performances from ASP Women’s WCT surfers. The Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro’s Round of 80 format represents the largest qualifying event for the 2013 ASP WCT and is also the only women’s qualifying event on the 2012 ASP North America schedule.

Courtney Conlogue (Santa Ana, CA), 19, built momentum in her Round of 24 heat, opening her assault with two 7-point rides and went on to blast the day’s highest scores. The talented Californian went on to net the day’s highest single wave score of a near-perfect 9.70 out of 10 for an impressive frontside air and competed her campaign with a combined 17.40 heat total while advancing to the Round of 12.

Olympic wave carries wakeboarding and skateboarding...what about surfing?

"Skateboarding and wakeboarding have strong chances of being included in the 2020 Olympic Games. Make no mistake I'm all for these 2 excellent additions. However, I wonder how they could leave out surfing. One of the greatest Olympians of all time, Duke Kahanamoku was a surfer 1st. It is one of the worlds most popular sport, by far more so than several Olympic events (think: race walking). Come on committee, its time to do what is fair and right." Gq.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) wants new sports and new audiences in the Olympic movement. In the history of the Olympiads, only two board sports have delivered medals: snowboarding and windsurfing.

While kiteboarding seems to be making a debut in the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games, surfing is still struggling to prove how popular it can be, in terms of global audience.
