Volcom Fiji Pro 2013 – Day 5 over. Quarterfinals coming up!
Day 5 has come to an end, and what a brilliant day it was! Those of us who followed the live stream via Volcom’s live broadcast bore witness to some truly amazing surfing – with John John Florence and Kelly Slater providing legendary runs in perfect four to six feet conditions at Cloudbreak, Fiji.
Two of the unrivaled highlights came in ROUND 4, Heat 1 and ROUND 4, Heat 2 – as our eyes oogled perfect ten (10.00) runs from both John John Florence and Kelly Slater.
Kelly Slater’s 10.00 was by far the strongest of the two, and the 41 year old showed a true display of divine power – as he got barreled multiple times in an absolute monster of a reefbreak wave. Even with the immense strength of the wave, Kelly actually let go of the rail – truly taming the wild, oceanic beast.
