I made sure I was down at Snapper Rocks, Coolangatta, QLD on Friday for the Men's Final of the WCT Quiksilver Pro event.
Off to a slow start, it was 20 minutes before Jordy Smith caught the first wave for a score of 6.7. Taj found his feet as he pounced on possibly the biggest wave of the day and set a solid 7.8 score. From then on it was cat and mouse.. a few mind games were played as TB had the right of way for the final 6 minutes making it tough for Jordy to make a comeback..
I planted myself in a solid position with my Flip Mino HD for the chair-lifting and edited the results into this 2 minute short on iMovie.
