The Billabong pro is halfway into Round 2, and the legendary wave Teahupoo, known as Chopes, has yet to come to life in the early stages of this event. Teahupoo is widely known as one of the most dangerous and hollow waves on the planet. Past champions include the Hobgood twins, Andy Irons and nine-time world champion Kelly Slater. So far the waves had been moderately small with windy conditions, with forecasters calling for a moderate west-southwesterly swell to continue through the next couple of days with more favorable winds projected.

Starting with six-time world champ Kelly Slater, current world champ CJ Hobgood and former Pipeline Masters Champion Rob Machado and many more, just to name a few. But the highlight of the heat was Jesse Billaurer, who in 1996 broke his neck while surfing and is paralyzed from the neck down.

For the second day in a row the Hurley Pro Trestles has been called off due to small and inconsistent 2- to 3-foot waves. The Hurley Pro, which has a five-day waiting period, only has one day of competition remaining after three days in which the waves have been good for the most part. With one full day remaining, the story thus far has been that of former No. 2-ranked surfer in the world upsetting current No. 1 ranked Joel Parkinson in Round 3, opening the door for a nine-time world champion to make a charge up the rankings and toward an unprecedented 10th world title.
