21 Days: Bourez and Hedge in The Run Up to Chopes

By on

The Billabong Pro Tahiti is just around the corner. It’s the sixth event on the 2014 ASP World Championship Tour and is held at Teahupo’o, one of the world’s most dangerous waves. It’ll be a critical time for all competitors, but none more so than Michel Bourez and Nathan Hedge.

For Michel, it’s a chance to gain some ground in the arduous World Title race. It’s the sole event in his home country and one that he’s experienced a strange run of bad luck at in the past. For Nathan, it’s the first step on the ladder back to the top. A former WCT competitor, Nathan fell off the tour and into a dark and dangerous lifestyle of partying. But he’s straightened himself out and emerged a new man – now he only has eyes for the Billabong Pro.
