UPDATE: Live at 5:50pm PDT Today- Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast 2013 Surfing Contest
It’s been confirmed - starting at 10:50am local time in Australia, it’s finals day. The contest has moved down to Kirra according to the latest report.
“Swell has picked up and it’s a bit big and messy at Snapper and not quite the right tide for Kirra,” Rich Porta, ASP International Head Judge, said. “We’ve put the event on hold this morning and will make the next call at 10am at Kirra.”
To whet your appetite, here’s a video recap of Round 5 and the Quarter Finals:
The Quik Pro is down to the last three heats and the last day of the waiting period, meaning that it will finish at some point today. Of the 4 surfers remaining in the contest, only Michel Bourez lacks a World Title. The other 3 have won almost every title in the last 10 years. Will it be Kelly, Mick, Joel or Michel on the winner’s stand today? The next call is at 7:30am local time, which is 2:30pm PDT. Tune in if you get a chance. This looks to be an exciting finish!
