EIGHT men and four women remaining means the Quik Pro Gold Coast needs only a few hours to finish. They just need the waves.
Four days on the bounce and these deciding rounds blasted through another marathon day, completing 16 heats. Homeboy Joel Parkinson scored the first perfect 10 of 2012 as he stands tall in challenging for his maiden title. Could this finally be Parko's year? What is for sure is that none of the hyped young bucks are still standing. Owen Wright kinda excluded but he's too tall to be a grom.
Traditionally at this point you talk about a grandstand finish with the best of the best left poised toe-to-toe. This still stands as far as the surfers stack up, the quarters have: Adriano De Souza vs. Owen Wright, Kelly Slater vs. Josh Kerr, Jordy Smith vs. Joel Parkinson and Taj Burrow vs. Adrian Buchan. But sadly looking at the charts you're left hoping there'll be a decent wave to finish the event on. © 2013 Quiksilver
