The final day of the Billabong Pro Tahiti began with a number of Round Five fireworks. The round kicked off with former winner Ace Buchan taking out South African Jordy Smith. Shortly after, Kelly Slater made history by surfing a perfect heat against Keanu Asing. It was Slater's second time earning two perfect 10s at Teahupo'o, and the third perfect heat of his career. Gabriel Medina and John John Florence now begin their sprint for the yellow jersey.
