The waves were very cooperative with 3-6 foot waves consistently through-out the day. The girls pushed their waves all the way to the inside and were in peak critical pockets and drops.

Some short board standouts are 1st Place Dax Mc Gill (15yrs), Tatiana Weston Webb got some great waves, Brianna Cope battled it out but received a slight Pipeline wound. Anastasia Ashley had some of the set waves, Melanie Bartels with a barrel, and bodyboarder Carla Costa Taylor received a perfect 10 wave score! , Minami Hatakeyama (second place bodyboard), Winner of Longboard-Izumi Baldwin

Joel Parkinson Flipping Off Kelly Slater

DROP-IN THAT COST JOEL THE QUIKKY – Gold Coast Bulletin
It was the wave that could have won him the Quiksilver Pro and Joel Parkinson was none to happy when Kelly Slater dropped in and seated the Gold Coaster’s fate at Kirra yesterday. Needing a score of 9.89 to overtake his rival in the dying minutes of yesterday’s final, Parkinson paddled into a wave that looked set to take him on a long barreling ride, a maneuver which had earnt him a perfect 10 in his semi-final win earlier in that day. But with Slater holding priority, Parkinson was forced to yield when the American decided to take the wave – and channeled his frustration through his index finger. Slater went on to win the first event of the 2013 ASP world tour.
