Billabong Rio Pro runs May 7th - 18th at Barra da Tijuca - Rio de Janerio, Brazil. The primary event site is the beachbreak of Barra da Tijuca while the backup sites include the lefthand point of Praia da Arpoador and if the winds aren’t cooperating, a sheltered third wave Canto do Recreio will also be an option. Adam Melling starts in Ht 3 vs Brett Simpson and Taj. Good luck mate.
The event will get off to a nice start with a mid to longer period SSE swell on track strongest Wednesday before easing Thursday and into Friday.
Update May 7th
Mello couldn't find any gems in the 2' wonky close out shorey today and was sent into Round 2. 

Update May 10th
Adam caught plenty of waves and surfed with determination in his heat vs Ace but couldn't find a 5.34 in the terrible conditions. Brazil done now Mello gets to go surfing in Fiji. There won't be any heats in 2' onshore closeouts there, guaranteed.
