• Taj Burrow and Joel Parkinson Excel in Fiji

A perfect 10 and a solid finish for Billabong Team Riders at the Fiji Pro, Cloudbreak.

The action from the Fiji Pro steadily went from good, to great to epic with all of the world's best performing at the top of their games. Two of the best in the biz, Taj Burrow and Joel Parkinson, stayed true to their high ability levels the whole event. The two went off with Taj making it all the way to the semifinals getting equal 3rd, and Joel making it to the quarters with an equal fifth place showing. Joel nailed the contests first 10-point ride for an extremely deep Cloudbreak pit that seemed to rub off and motivate eventual contest winner Owen Wright. A big congrats to both Taj and Joel on the great showing and we'll see if they both can back up their results at Jeffrey's Bay.
