Santa Barbara surfing professional Bobby Martinez withdrew from the ASP World Tour event in Tahiti, where he’s a two-time champion.
Martinez, not one to sugar-coat his comments about the tour, said in an interview on the Channel Islands Surfboard blog: “”I am not going to do the Chopes event. I love Tahiti and that wave; I just don’t like being there for an event with everyone there.”
Martinez also said in the interview that he’s planning to leave the pro tour.
