Tavarua: the surfing jewel of Fiji

The endless spitting barrels of Tavarua are back in the ASP World Tour track with the Volcom Fiji Pro 2013, to be surfed between 2nd-14th June.

With 13-day waiting period which falls directly in the middle of Fiji's prime surf season, the best surfers in town are ready to repeat the epic 2012 event.

"I'm so excited to be heading to Fiji for the first time in my career to compete. I've watched every event out there and have always wanted to be a part of it", says Dusty Payne, who returns after a lengthy ankle injury.

"I can't really put into words how excited I am to be healthy and ready to compete at one of my favorite waves in the world!"

The southern oceans have already been stirring with swell and chances are more than promising that we will see epic surf for the event once again.

Mitch Coleborn has been chosen as the 2013 Volcom Fiji Pro wildcard for the second year in a row. The second wildcard will be awarded to the winner of the local trials held by the Fiji Surfing Association.

"I'm excited to get back to Fiji and compete as a wildcard at one of the best stops on tour. The waves are amazing and last year was one of the best trips of my life", expresses Mitch Coleborn.
