Billabong Pro Maui
The Women’s world surfing tour wrapped up it’s season this weekend at the Billabong Pro Maui held at Honolua Bay in West Maui. Tour rookie Jessi Miley-Dyer won the Billabong Pro with Kaua’i’s Keala Kennelly placing second. Third place finisher Layne Beachley’s performance was good enough to vault her to her seventh world title. World famous Honolua Bay served up fantastic surf throughout the contest. Friday’s event featured big surf with set waves pushing triple overhead. The women of the world tour were not afraid to charge getting lots of great rides including some huge barrels. The final day of surf was smaller but still excellent. Congratulations to the ladies on their performance throughout the event. A special congratulations goes to Haiku’s Paige Alms an event wild card. Alms made her presence known when she knocked off 2005 World Champ Chelsea Georgeson in the first round.
