Billabong Rio Pro 2013

Billabong Rio Pro 2013

Period: May 8 - May 19, 2013
Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Billabong Rio Pro is the third event on the ASP Men’s schedule. It will gather the elite riders on the ASP tour once again for a challenging and action packed competition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This year, the Billabong Rio Pro takes place between the 8th and 19th of May. Apart for the ranking points at stake there is $500,000 to be won. The competition will be amazing.

Last year, the event was a huge success. John John Florence (HAW), 19, has won his maiden ASP World Championship Tour event, taking out the Billabong Rio Pro over Joel Parkinson (AUS), 31, in barreling three-to-four foot (1 meter) waves at Barra da Tijuca.

We are sure the two of them are prepared for a new challenge and will showcase their amazing skills once again in their unique styles.
