Billabong is holding their yearly competition at Tahiti's Teahupoo reef right now.. They've got some really sick videos of the pre-event qualifying rounds, as well as some sick tow-in rides on their website. The waves have kinda mellowed out since then and they've been in a holding pattern until it picks up again enough to run the finals.. But, there's been posts almost twice-daily about all that so you can read it for youself.. http://www.billabongpro.com/
This is no fucking Tahiti, but guess where I'll be on Friday..
