This week we cover the glory and drama that was the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast, including the injuries, the upside down world rankings, Duke-esque maneuvers, and so much more. Enjoy!
SHOUT OUT TO MIKE AND ERIC FOR HOSTING DAVID ON THE OUTER BANKS
Mike Rowe is a great shaper on the Outer Banks. His label is called Hooked Surfboards. If you’re ever on the Outer Banks, order a board from Mike and stay in his epic bungalow in Kitty Hawk, 2 blocks from the beach.
THE QUIKSILVER PRO GOLD COAST
Stu Kennedy entered this event as an injury replacement and exits as the #3 surfer in the world! (And check out that Club Sandwich turn at the 11 second mark).
Kelly struggles on his ‘Banana’ model KS Designs surfboard.
Filipe gets injured trying to stomp an air in the semifinals. He’ll be out for the next two events.
Wilko takes down Kolohe in the final.
Jordy Smith dismantling Mozambique in preparation for Snapper.
The “Club Sandwich” maneuver. Stuey did a few sick ones and then Joanne stomped this one, making her the first female to pull one in competition.
This week’s Kook are the listeners who think that David is Scott and then send him their hate mail. David gets enough hate mail of his own, send Scott’s directly to him!
