Watch: A Delicate Balance of Ego and Pre-Contest Jitters

You think it gets competitive on a weekend at your local, try Teahupoo the morning before competition commences. Peter King swam out during warmups yesterday and found himself parked in the middle of a busy intersection. Ducking and weaving (and nearly being torn apart by a three pack of performance fins), he saw John Florence assuming the commissioner's role, Filipe Toledo cheering on Kolohe Andino, paddle battles, unofficial scoring and a cameo from Koa Smith. Dive in for the latest Tournotes episode.
