Billabong Pro Tahiti: Nick Carroll’s Picks 2015
Nick Carroll gives his pundit review of the Billabong Pro Tahiti at Teahupo’o, the seventh stop on the WSL Championship Tour.
NEAR CERTAINTIES: Julian, Owen, JJF, Flores
PRETTY GOOD BETS: Nat, Wiggolly, Medina, Ace, Bede, Wilko
POINT PROVERS: Toledo, ADS, Bourez, Kolohe
UNKNOWABLES: Slater, Mick, Wildcards
Last year, Teahupoo went off its rocker and virtually decided the world championship via Gabriel Medina’s very coolly assembled win. It was surely the highlight event of 2014. This year, things will almost certainly be a bit trickier. The surfers are coming to Tahiti having experienced a terrifying and dramatic end to the last event at Jeffreys, at least five of ‘em are in the title hunt, and the oceanic outlook isn’t showing off any 12-foot days in the near future.
