Taj Burrow und Stephanie Gilmore gewinnen Quik Pro Gold Coast 2012

Quik Pro Gold Coast Finalist

Nach einer langen Wartepause waren die Wellen in Snapper Rocks wieder zurück. Über den Sieg des Quiksilver Gold Coast 2012 können sich Taj Burrow bei den Herren und Stepahnie Gilmore bei den Damen freuen.

taj burrowIm Finale traf Taj auf Adriano De Souza, der mit einem massiven Air-Reverse in den letzten Sekunden mit nur 0.27 am Sieg vorbei schrammte. “I feel so good now! I had a really good event last year, but came up short in the Final against Kelly (Slater). Then today when I found myself against Adriano (De Souza), I was really nervous because he got me in a Final in Brazil last year. He’s really tough and I don’t like competing against him to be honest. There was a lot of weight on my shoulders in that Final so it’s pretty rewarding to come out on top.” so Taj Burrow im Siegestaumel.

Stephanie Gilmore musste im Fianle gegen Laura Enever ran, die ihr im Heat nichts schenkte. Rundum hat Stephanie verdient gewonnen und ist so wieder die No.1 auf der  ASP Women’s World Championship Tour. “To be carried up the beach with your friends underneath you with thousands of people around has got to be one of the best feelings in the world,” so Gilmore. “It took me back to 2005 when I won here as a grom. Last year went so quickly and it felt like I didn’t even exist on the rankings and that fire wasn’t really there. This year it’s so good to have that back! My cheeks are so sore from smiling already.”

King Kelly flog im Halbfinale gegen Josh Kerr aus dem Contest, der mit dicken Airs im “Kerzy-Style” nichts angbrennen ließ. Kelly Slater dazu: “If the waves were better I would be really bummed that I lost. I got one at the end that I thought would be good, I went for the carving 360 and got stuck. Then I turned around and Josh (Kerr) was on a pretty nice one and he got that air at the end. He’s always going to be a threat in conditions like this where he can throw big airs. I got Josh a few times last year, we had four Quarterfinal battles last year where I got him, so he owed me a couple. It never feels good to lose, but I’m happy for Josh. I’m not sure if I’m going to Bells. I’m just going to go find some good waves in the next few weeks. Then I’ll figure out what I’m going to do for the year.”
