 “We’ve awoken to pristine conditions at Jeffreys this morning with consistent four-to-six foot waves on offer and we’ll be commencing competition at 8am,” Richie Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said. “We plan on a full day of competition and good luck to all the boys today.”

Traditional dancers welcomed the guests at the opening function of the Billabong Pro.

A highly successful opening function was held at Cob’s Creek last night to kick start the event. Jordy Smith the 4th seed from South Africa and current world number 2 said that he was hoping for a big event at this year’s Billabong Pro but was sticking to his winning formula for 2010 and that was to go out and have fun.
