Good Luck In Fiji Boys
When the Fiji Pro waiting period starts on June 1st, Taj Burrow and Joel Parkinson sit at 2nd and 3rd place in the WCT rankings with only 1,000 points separating Parko from Kelly Slater. Historically Fiji has been a good event for Kelly, but last year both Parko and Taj had strong results and look to build on that momentum this year to stay in the thick of the world title race.
Follow us on Instagram @billabong for live updates of Taj and Parko in Tavarua.
In 2012 the contest was put on hold when Cloudbreak went XXL - that didn't stop Parko from giving it a go.
Taj looked to be headed to the finals last year when an on-fire Seabass slowed him down in Round 5.
Joel was on fire last year reaching the semifinals after a great many barrels like this.
Taj Burrow loves barrels - frontside or backside, he doesn't care.
When things get technical, Parko takes the lead.
