“The first time that I came to Fiji was on a Volcom trip and ever since that first trip I have been enamored by the waves and especially the people of Tavarua.  Being involved in this event as a commentator has been amazing and to have a last-minute wildcard into the event this year is just the icing on the cake and I couldn’t be happier!” – Alex Gray
