Joel Tudor has brought 32 of the best loggers in the world to the South China Sea where they will compete in the freewheeling ode to traditional longboarding contests, the Duct Tape Invitational. In a few hours, the hooter will sound and the event will be underway. In the meantime, take a look through a few photos taken during the freesurfs that have gone down so far. Looks like there are some fun little peelers rolling into Riyue Bay this week.
