It’s June, and the Volcom Pro in Fiji has just kicked off. The top dogs in surfing have gathered in one of the most beautiful islands in the world, in order to do what they do best. The sun is shining, the air and water are warm, and the waves are at a height between 4 and 6 feet. Couldn’t be better. The professionals will not only be fighting for the points within the ASP brackets, but also a solid $450,000 prize purse. Returning to the water in the Volcom Pro will be Jack’s own, John John Florence, after suffering from an ankle injury in the Gold Coast. Watch this kid, he’s sick.
So, with all the shredders warmed up and in the running, the Volcom Pro in Fiji is most definitely going to be a feat to keep your eyes on. It’s gonna get ill.
Coming into the Volcom Pro, the ASP top 5 standings are as follows:
1. Adriano de Souza (BRA)
2. Jordy Smith (ZAF)
3. Mick Fanning (AUS)
4. Kelly Slater (USA)
5. Taj Burrow (AUS)
