The 2012 Billabong Pro Tahiti came to a conclusion in Teahupo’o on Monday, August 27th. After a week of small surf and multiple lay days, the final round of the event saw 5 to 6 foot swells, setting the stage for a pretty exciting conclusion! In the end, Mick Fanning conquered the competition over fellow Australian surfer Joel Parkinson. Fanning scored his two winning rides in the final 10 minutes, earning him a total of 18.87 points (Parkinson completed the surf heat with 18.37 points).
Today is the fourth consecutive lay day for the 2012 Billabong Pro Tahiti. So what does that mean exactly? Unfortunately, the event is on hold due to smaller-than-normal surf conditions. However, the Surfline forecast shows a 10-foot swell on the radar soon, so the surfers are more than happy to be holding out. In the meantime, they are free to roam the island of Tahiti—and it looks like they’re definitely enjoying themselves!
