A Recap of the Billabong Pro Tahiti Trials 2016

Today we had the Main Event Trials here at Teahupoo and it was pumping from start to finish. The whole day had surf in the 6-10 ft(face) range with some heats being slightly slower than others. Highlights from the day included Finn McGill finishing in the quarters, Zeke Lau's 9.3 backside shack, Jack Robinson's smooth style and mastery of the lineup and eventual winner Bruno Santos taking down the field heat after heat with strong forehand tubes.

In the end, our top two finishers from the team were Seth Moniz and Jack Robinson who both bowed out in the semifinals. The final saw Bruno Santos, a past Billabong Pro Tahiti champion, taking the win over Nathan Hedge. Bruno will join the Top 34 when the event kicks off on August 19.
