Duo log episode for Billabong Pro Tahiti diary video series

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24 January, 2012 : - - From January 24th 2012, fans of #1 selling music sensation, Colbie Caillat, will be able to check out a unique new travelogue video diary that showcases the singer/songwriter’s recent trip to Tahiti with Australian pro surfer Ellie-Jean Coffey. Coffey shared her “favourite place on Earth” with the two-time Grammy winner who was in Polynesia to perform at the opening ceremony of one of the world’s most spectacular and revered sporting events, the Billabong Pro, Tahiti.

Held each August, the Billabong Pro is set against Tahiti’s breathtaking natural backdrop and thousands of fans flock to watch the world’s best surfers try and tame the legendary break; “Teahupo’o”. “It was a cool feeling to see how far music can travel. These people knew my music and were singing it back to me. It was really a nice feeling,” said Caillat.

Caillat and Coffey enjoyed ‘ringside’ seats at the tournament, positioned in boats just meters from the tubing waves, and both ocean lovers jumped at the chance to confront another of their fears – swimming face-to-face with sharks in the waters off neighbouring Tahitian island, Moorea.
