Birds fighting over the lagoon. TEAHUPOO, Taiarapu/Tahiti (Saturday, August 28, 2010) - After going on hold for the majority of the morning, event organizers called the Billabong Pro Tahiti off for the sixth day in a row, but a new southwest swell projected to fill in tomorrow could have the world's best surfers in the water within the next 24 hours.. .Event No. 5 of 10 on the 2010 ASP World Tour, the Billabong Pro Tahiti has yet to commence competition, but a favourable southwest swell filling in over the next few days all but guarantees the competition will begin soon. Surfers filled in their day with surfing small Teahupoo and surrounding reef passes, a mix of training, sightseeing and computer time. Surfers Mick Fanning (AUS), Taylor Knox (USA) and Tiago Pires (PRT) had a close encounter with a pod of humpback whales just outside of the Teahupoo lagoon. Describing the experience as one of the most amazing things ever to happen to them. Fanning actually 'touched a whale' as it swam past. Photo: joliphotos.com
