Andy wins, Jordy stays number 1 and Travis makes the cut in Tahiti!

Andy Irons (HAW), 32, past three-time ASP World Champion, collected his 20th elite tour victory today, besting C.J. Hobgood (USA), 31, to claim the Billabong Pro Tahiti. Credit: © ASP / ROBERTSON


One of my favorite surfers of all time Andy Irons of Hawaii has fought back from a year off tour to win the Billabong Pro Tahiti.  Andy’s year off tour took its toll as he looked like he had been left behind with his surfing at the start of the year but as the year has progressed he gradually found his form that has now taken him to king of Tahiti again. Andy, now 32 and former 3 times A.S.P. World Champion took down Floridian C.J. Hobgood in an exciting final.


It was no easy task for Andy to get back to his winning form, on his way to the final he was matched up against the likes of 9 times World Champion Kelly Slater and 2 times current world Champion Mick Fanning, so Irons had to show a lot of commitment and confidence to bounce back and take down these on form big names. Well done Andy, I look forward to see how you go the rest of the year!


Current World number 1 Jordy Smith did not have too much fortune in this event as he lost to Wild Card Manoa Drolett for a 17th Place finish. Jordy managed to hold onto number 1 spot but only just as he is currently on 30 250 points to World number 2 Kelly Slater on 30 000 points. World number 3 Taj Burrow had a shocker event finishing 33rd leaving a 5000 gap between him and Jordy on 25 250 points!


Travis Logie did extremely well to take down Australian Charger Kieren Perrow in the 33rd Round but lost to Fred Patachia of Hawaii leaving Travis in 17th Position. This was however enough to keep him in the top 32 and make the mid year cut off at 29th place. Well Done Travis!


A huge well done must go out to our South African Masters team who finished runner up in the World Masters Games in Panama. The team came agonisingly close to winning the event and were just piped on points by Australia. Congratulations to Andrew Banks, Heather Clark and Chris Knutsen who won their respective divisions!

Great read, well-written. The problem I think is that when visitors hover watch their mouse into your name and see that url directing to a blogger profile in watch their status bar, its more likely that they won’t click it.

Thank you for making the sincere effort to explain this. I feel fairly strong about it and would like to read more. If it's allright, as you learn more in depth knowledge, would you mind writing more posts similar to this one with more information? It would be extremely helpful and useful for me and my friends.

A nice green gel sole completes the package. These also came with the silver <a href=""></a> <a href="">Chanel Handbags</a> premium keychain. Best shoes i've brought for ages, the grip is unbeleivable can stop and turn on a dime, they fit perfectly and my feet are never sore after playing <a href="">Air Jordan Shoes</a> in them.I have read some of the bad reviews and I will write again in a few weeks or after my track season to see how they wear.. These premium <a href="">Michael Jordan Shoes</a> were only available on <a href="> in 2006 and were not available in stores. Retail on them was <a href="">Juicy Couture Bags</a> and a matching shirt was released alongside them as well. They feature a nice all patent leather upper with no <a href="">Juicy Couture Bag</a> on the toe but some stars are pictured in their place.

Certainly agree with just what you said. Your explanation was definitely the simplest to comprehend. I tell you, I typically get irritated whenever people comment on matters that these people plainly don't know about. You were able to hit the nail on the head and spelled out the whole thing without problem. Perhaps, individuals could get a signal. Will more than likely be back again to acquire even more. Thx
