When the going gets tough, the tough keep going...Damien Hobgood pushing through in challenging looking conditions in his quarter-final yesterday.

Nathan Hedge
Most hogs frolick in mud pits, but this one hangs out in much cleaner environs.

Nathan Hedge
This is the wave that ripped Nathan Hedge's shoulder out of its socket and ended his final assault, just seven minutes into what was sure to be a thrilling and testing encounter with CJ Hobgood.

CJ Hobgood
Wouldn't you just love to have as much barrel time as this bloke racked up in the past few days? Our winner CJ in yet another!

CJ Hobgood
Ceej gets up and running on his way to victory at Teahupoo - after three finals here, he has ultimately claimed one!

Kelly Slater
Kelly Slater had some unbelievable pits this week, but he had no answer to CJ's brilliance in their semi-final. This shot is a little dark - there was lots of rain and low cloud yesterday...or then again, maybe I just under-exposed it!?

Nathan Hedge & Andy Irons
...and yes, we even had a bit of controversy, at the start of Andy and Hog's semi' - but we'll tell you about that later in the week.

Andy Irons
All the way through the event, it was looking like another Andy/Kelly final, but you never can tell! Here's Andy in one of his numerous pits this week.

CJ Hobgood
Who says there's not gold at the end of every rainbow? Locked in here on his way to winning the Billabong Pro Teahupoo, CJ might disagree with you!

CJ Hobgood
Former top 16 surfer Vetea 'Poto' David just loves this part of his job, scooping up the winner after the Teahupoo final. It's pretty much 'his' wave! CJ Hobgood is looking pretty happy huh! Onya Ceej!
