Matty Wilko quite clearly knows how to spend a rainy day in Teahupo’o. When ASP photog Kirstin (who shot this) asked him what he’d been doing all day, Wilko said he’d spent the day just cruising around town and having coffee with these girls at one of the local Snack Bars, out there at the end of the road. Some surfers are swimming, playing tennis (or Bocce), going on hikes, or playing soccer. But Wilko here’s leading a party of women around town, having discussions as deep as their heavily accented english will allow, over a warm caffeine beverage. Who’s smarter, d’ya reckon?
With another lay-day called for today and even more certain promises from event organisers that the Billabong pro, Tahiti will in fact run tomorrow, what d’you spose Wilko’s got on the cards for the next 12-or-so hours?
