2011 Billabong Rio Pro

May 12th, 2011 by John Zanussi

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. The women are in the water now and the men might get in the water later today. We’ve got an injury update along with the first round heat matchups below. More »

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 »
