The Sapinus Pro, presented by Air Tahiti Nui is here

We are now just under 2 weeks out from what is, without doubt, one of the most spectacular stops on the Stand Up World Tour: the Waterman League’s Sapinus Pro, presented by Air Tahiti Nui. In 2010, we saw some of the most mind blowing action of the Tour so far in heavy 10 – 12ft barrels, as Duane DeSoto pulled into one of the heaviest barrels yet, to set the tone of the event, and big wave Dave Muir matched size with size, carving his way to victory in the powerful surf. This year’s event will be bigger and better, as Air Tahiti Nui will fly athletes in from over 12 nations to take part in Stop 3 of the Stand Up World Tour
