TEAHUPOO, Tahiti - The Billabong Pro Tahiti 
presented by Air Tahiti Nui, event No. 3 of 10 on the 2009 ASP World Tour,
has been called off for the day, with only small, two-to-three foot (1
metre) waves on offer at Teahupoo today.

“Conditions are small today and too inconsistent to justify running with
so much time remaining in the waiting period,” Luke Egan, Billabong Pro
Tahiti Contest Director said. “We’re tracking some swell models over the
next couple of days so hopefully tomorrow yields more promising
conditions.”

Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow morning at 6:30am to assess
conditions for a possible 7:30am start.

Surfline, official foreers for the Billabong Pro Tahiti, are calling for
today’s remnants of the WSW swell to fade before a SE swell fills in
through the next couple of days.

When competition resumes, up first will be Taylor Knox (USA), 27, up
against Kai Otton (AUS), 29, in Heat 7 of Round 2.

Highlights from yesterday’s Billabong Pro Tahiti presented by Air Tahiti
Nui are available at www.billabongpro.com
