Well, surf wise it is all happening on the Tweed (NSW) and Gold (Qld) Coasts in February / March. We have just seent he finish of the Roxy & Quiksilver Pros from 2-15March, with Tyler Wright and Kelly Slater the respective winners. Next week the Australian Surfing Longboard Open is held at Kingscliff beach from 20-24 March.
The finals of the Quiksilver Pro were held at Kirra on 13 March under brilliant conditions. A big and enthuiastic crowd watched Kelly Slater edge out local stars Mick Fanning, in the semi-finals, and current World champ Joel Parkinson in a thrill packed Final.
Joel Parkinson in the tube suring the Final. His two top scoring waves of 8.67 and 7.83 were just not enough to beat Kelly Slater’s two top scores of 9.83 and 8.73.
