With Pipe winding down for the season comes the awakening of another heavy Pacific beast, Teahupoo. After the North Shore’s season starting with a bang thanks to a pumping swell but then dropping off, the locals and travelling pros alike will be hoping that Teahupoo stays awake for the rest of the season.
With the World Tour not coming into town til August, Teahupoo’s going to have to keep delivering the goods for a while yet. It’s going to be very strange having the Billabong Pro at Teahupoo with out its favourite son Andy Irons. Watch out for Raimana Van Bastolaer picking off one of the bigger sets at 1:20.
