Fiji Pro - World Surf League

The Fiji Pro
is over and what an historic event with Owen Wright out surfing Julian Wilson in spectacular waves at Cloudbreak. Not perfect waves by any means but very solid and contestable. If you watched it you would have seen the strong winds with the chop on the ocean outside and the waves getting cleaner as they hit the inside reef and reeled off down the line. There were a lot of waves that either closed out or were just fat but it was amazing to see the world's best here in Fiji making it look so easy. How was that first 10 of Owen's when he took off on the roll through? You couldnt even see him in the mountain of whitewater until he got to his feet at the bottom of the wave. If you're a surfer you know how difficult that move was.
