Billabong Rio Pro Back On Today After a 5 Day Lay Period

The Billabong Rio Pro is back on again today at Barra da Tijuca!  After a 5 day lay period with no's now a bit gnarly out there - rainy and stormy - but the waves have size and there are some punchy sections.  As you can see, Josh Kerr launched a big air off one of those sections.
