It’s the most, wonderful time, of the year. No, that’s not a Christmas carol in August. That’s just the general sentiment among WSL surfers and fans, because we’ve just entered Tahiti Season. The time when we return to the world’s most mesmerizing left, Teahupo’o, and are surrounded by kind hearted people and Moana-style mountains. It’s late enough in the season where the leaders of the pack have pulled ahead, but with enough time for anyone to make a late push. And with the top-5 separated by just 4,000 points, anything can happen.
The waiting period for the Billabong Pro Tahiti is August 11-22. Tahiti is three hours behind the US West Coast, so cancel your midday meetings and tune into worldsurfleague.com to root for your favorite Monster riders.
