Billabong Pro Tahiti- Opening Ceremonies
The 2017 Billabong Pro Opening Ceremonies commenced yesterday under partly cloudy skies to a packed house at the Point in Teahupoo. Surfers from all over the world joined with the Tahiti community and World Surf League representatives to pay their respects and wish all of the participants good luck in the event.
The highlight of the day is always when the local Tahitian dancers come and perform for the entire crowd. About midway through their routine they’ll invite spectators and pro surfers alike to dance. It all ends up being a hell of a good time with laughter, handshakes and fun.
Tomorrow the main event waiting period begins with the event likely running three days in a row and finishing on Sunday due to the forecast. Make sure to stay tuned for daily updates.
