Sport: Bourez eliminated from Billabong Pro

11:05 am on 26 August 2014

Tahitian surfer Michel Bourez's run at his home event, the Billabong Pro at Teahupo'o, has come to an end in the fifth round.

The 28 year old began the day with a second-placed finish in his fourth round heat, with a 13.73 total, to advance alongside Australia's Adrian Buchan.

But an improved 14.66 wasn't enough to hold off the challenge of another Aussie, Bede Durbidge, in the fifth round.
