Toughing It Out on Tavarua

After a full week of fantastic conditions, the swell started to wane at Cloudbreak and Restaurants, resulting in a few lay days for the Fiji Pro. But life at Tavarua and Namotu, the two islands where the Top 34 shack up for the two-week event window, is never dull. Some are reveling in contest glory while others are keeping their respective competitive edges alive. Here's a look at some of the island fever that's spreading. We have to get these guys back in the water...
