Teahupoo Preview for World Surf League

Two things I have to admit here:

1) When I surfed Tahiti, I thought I was going to drown. Lost my board in big surf, half a mile from shore, all alone. And I never even surfed Teahu'poo...

2) After covering years of WSL contests via webcast (and a few live Pipe Masters) when it was part of my job title, I haven't watched a whole lot of events the past two years.

Had to get that out of the way. The WSL recently contacted me to do some event previews. And hey, it's Teahu'poo. A new media company took over the ASP last year and this year it's called the World Surf League. They've tailored their coverage to a wider sports audience, to which everyone has his or her own opinion. Anyway, I wrote them a preview of the Billabong Pro Tahiti.
