Downtime at the #BillabongPro Tahiti
The swell has yet to come, but when you are in paradise there is nothing to complain about. Live vicariously through some photos from the downtime.
The view from the channel is always breathtaking, no matter the waves.
After three unsuccessful spearfishing dives Matt Bromley comes up with the same smile you see after he gets spit out of a barrel.
The trees here are as beautiful as the waves...almost.
Now that's a backdrop.
If you are bored in Tahiti, you get up and walk around. Then you are happy.
Care to swing?
Cliche? Maybe, but beautiful nonetheless.
The views truly are breathtaking. Jake Halstead and Ale Moreda enjoy some time on the boat.
This is a Tahitian tunnel.
Even in paradise you need to check emails and get on Instagram. Alejandro Moreda, Matt Bromley and Ricardo Dos Santos get to work.
Sunsets here are two steps beyond romantic, they are epic.
Nighttime fishing off the dock, no matter the outcome it is the best way to have a few beers and share some stories.
Taj, Joel and Occy keep the locals stoked with some autographs and photos.
Showers in Tahiti are not surrounded by tiles, they are in valleys and flow from the mountains.
Did we catch anything? Nope. Was it worth it? Yes.
Wether or not you catch anything underwater, it is worth the dive.
