Billabong Pro Teahupoo Tahiti Offbeat PropheciesBrian Roddy lays out some analytics, guesses and gossip on the 2014 Billabong Pro Teahupoo.
Gabriel Medina is your current world number 1 and he’s there because he’s had unwavering, steel-like consistent year. There’s no question that Gabriel will become Brazil’s first world champion if he maintains this fiery pace, but our word is that he won’t. Watch for Gabe to make an early exit from the Billabong Pro.
Kelly Slater has been largely absent from the 2014 World Tour. He’s without an early season win for the first time since like 1932. Don’t look so surprised to see tears of champagne dripping down Kelly’s face when all is said and done. If not, he’ll likely slunp into even more apathy. Tahiti is a loaded event for the greatest surfer of all time.
