Bobby Martinez beat Taj “Burrito” Burrow in a thrilling final to the Tahiti event. It wasn’t by any means “classic” Teahupoo, despite this the WCT boys shredded the 3 – 4 ft range. Taj was on hot form, but couldn’t beat Bobby who had tough heat draws leading up to the final.
Outstanding performance of the competition had to go to the little Basque man Artiz Aranburu, who made it all the way to the Semis after beating Dane Reynolds, Kelly Slater and Tommy Whitaker. And a man back on for is the not so young Mick Campbell. Mick Smashed and fought his way through the best of the WCT in the worlds best waves.
Well it was a great competition, nice to see a few dark horses make a few rounds. Even better to see my fantasy surf team take the lead of the club house!
