2010 Billabong Pro Santa Catarina Final Highlights

April 30th, 2010 by John Zanussi

The Billabong Pro was full of high flying action, but it all came to a end when the unstoppable local Brazilian Jadson Andre took down the nine time World Champion, Mr. Kelly Slater.  No one stood a chance to Jadson’s front-side 360s and fast electric maneuvers that he was pulling off  throughout the whole event. It was almost like his front-side 360’s were as easy as a regular cut-back. Jadson scored a heat total of 14.40, beating Kelly (14.00) by only 0.40 points in the final. More »

Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach Preview

March 29th, 2010 by John Zanussi

  It is around 4:30pm here on the East Coast on March 29th but it is right around 7:30am on March 30th in Victoria, Australia, which means that the second contest of the year is soon to kick off it’s waiting period. The Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach is sure to be quite the contest this year, especially with how the year has started off already.

Rip Curl Pro Search 2010 is heading to the Caribbean

February 1st, 2010 by John Zanussi

  Two years ago was it was Bali and last year it was Portugal. The 2010 Rip Curl Pro Search will be held ‘Somewhere in the Caribbean’ and we won’t know the official location until the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach in April. This announcement does put away a lot of the rumors that were flying around about this year’s location but now a whole new set of rumors starts: Where in the caribbean? The Search event’s waiting period does not start until October 30th and the Caribbean can be hit or miss that time of the year as far as swell. The Atlantic Hurricane season is coming to a close and it is still a little early for the east coast nor’easters to start pumping. I’m going to come right out and say that Puerto Rico has to be the favorite here. Giving its surfing history, ability to hold large contests and of course the excellent swells it receives, I don’t see how they would choose anywhere else. Maybe Barbados? Let’s here what you guys think in the comments…. UPDATE: The location for the Rip Curl Pro Search 2010 has been announced, click the link to find out where in the Caribbean it will be held! More »
