It's been a busy couple of weeks in the world of pro surfing, and with elite tour stars landing in Tahiti in preparation for the Billabong Pro there's little sign of things slowing down. Before things get too hectic, take a moment to dive beneath the latest pro-surfing headlines with our WSL field reporters Chris Mauro, Dave Prodan, and Milby Shannon; hosts of the completely unsanctioned B-Team podcast.

Among the topics our resident pundits cover this week: will Tahiti be a turning point in this year's title race? Can Kelly Slater qualify for the Olympics? Didn't Taj Burrow retire? And why exactly was the late great Midget Farrelly so significant to the surf scene we live in today? Enjoy, and then email any questions, comments or requests to: bteam@worldsurfleague.com.
