FAVOURITES' Day down at Snapper Rocks for the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast kick-off. Kelly, Mick, Parko, Taj, Jordy etc etc all through without even glancing at a bar of soap.
New favourite Julian Wilson forgot he was a rookie, putting in a performance justifying his multimillion dollar price-tag and suddenly he's a force to be reckoned with. Until he loses that is. Jordy just looked his normal powerhouse self, the homeboys Parko and Mick hardly broke sweat and then there's Taj who's apparently been holding back all this time. As for Kelly, he's not going anywhere is he?
Do you like our new format? We've decided that moving pictures are the future and tour stops are more easily enjoyed and ingested over a cup of tea and a biscuit if you can't stay up all night watching webcasts. It is well worth watching live though, "bang-tidy" as I heard someone say last night.
Whist the swell was pretty small today and getting smaller it's all change next weekend with swell on the way for the final few days.
