2011 Billabong Rio Pro

The 12 day waiting period for the 2011 Billabong Rio Pro started yesterday. There was a solid 6 foot swell in the water but the contest beach was all closeouts so they called a lay day. Today is a new day and the swell has dropped a little bit but there are some good clean waves for the first day of competition.
