Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast Australia Surfing Contest Review

The ASP World Championship Tour kicks of this month in Australia’s Gold Coast with the Quiksilver Pro presented by Land Rover. this contest traditionally provides a fantastic start to the season held in the barreling right hand point breaks that dominate the South Queensland region. the scene of some of surfing’s great moments and home to the legendary MP, this place is steeped in history. the beaches are loaded with beautiful woman making it almost impossible to stay focused to win the title. the local surfers the likes of Mick Fanning, Josh Kerr and Joel Parkinson know this wave inside and out, and they will be tough to beat. I still remember that semi final when Josh Kerr pulled an unbelievable move at the end of the heat only to lose on the judge’s score cards but win on the couches around the world.

This year’s title is looking exciting we have an established top ten that can beat anyone on their day, a new crop of radical surfers that will shake things up more than free beer offered at the local. Jordy Smith has been hanging in South Africa plotting and training hard and looks dangerous after a spell off the hot chips. Will Kelly Slater show, of course he will he loves the wave too much. Will Dane Reynolds fire and make a statement to the surfing community? It all looks set for a showdown of epic proportions and we can’t wait. MP famously used to abstain from the ladies before a contest of this importance, luckily this does not necessarily work for everyone.

The Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast will run from February 26 through March 9, 2011.

The ASP World surfing tour has continued to captivate surfers around the globe with the level of surfing continuing to improve to levels not previously seen. the judging criteria has also changed significantly whereby the Asp judges are now rewarding critical moves which has given the surfers on the Asp elite tour freedom to express themselves and all in the best waves on the planet. this years tour should be amazing especially when we consider a new venue has been added, the Quiksilver Long Island Pro. this contest will be more than just a surfing competition it is planned to be a festival of sorts incorporating music, arts and of course the surfing. Coupled with this is the Rip Curl somewhere competition which continues to take the surfing elite to a new undisclosed location every year, in past years the conditions have been outstanding.
