Suffolk Park’s Kieren Perrow won his opening heat at the Billabong Pro in Tahiti with an excellent 16.60 (out of 20.00) to advance directly into round three last Thursday.

Perrow on 17.93 was knocked out of the comp in that round by fellow Aussie Josh Kerr on 18.53. John narrowly won his fourth round heat against Jeremy Flores by just .2.

Round five is on today. Each of the four heats has an Australian competing – number one seed and defending event champion Mick Fanning, Adrian Buchan, Julian Wilson and Joel Parkinson are all looking for a second bite at the Tahitian (pine)apple.

Already through to the Quarters is an Hawaiian and Aussie contingent of John John Florence and Frederick Patacchia from the north and Kerr and Kai Otton from the south.

The Billabong Pro Tahiti is stop 6 of 10 on the ASP World Championship Tour and has a waiting period from August 15 to August 26.
