      GOLD COAST, Feb 28 - The world's best surfers blasted through another marathon day at the Gold Coast's Snapper Rocks as the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro presented by Land Rover completed 16 heats, determining the men's Quarterfinalists and women's Semifinalists before day's end. The opening stop on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour, The Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast has seen four, consecutive days of action with event organizers making the most of the swell on offer. Home town favourite Joel Parkinson (AUS) has scored the first perfect 10 of the Quiksilver Pro presented by Land Rover to reach the quarter final of the ASP men's world surfing championship event on the Gold Coast. Not even the lashing pain of a bluebottle sting could distract him as he grabbed the 10-point wave with five minutes remaining to leave fellow Queenslander Julian Wilson no hope of catching him. Parkinson comes up against Jordy Smith (ZAF) in the quarter final in what could be a lively meeting - earlier in the day Smith relegated Parkinson to round five as the South African advanced with the win into the quarter finals. At their previous meeting at Snapper Rocks in 2011 the South African eliminated Parkinson from the event in round five. The other quarterfinal heats pit Gold Coaster Josh Kerr against the red hot Kelly Slater, (USA). Owen Wright (Aus) against Brazil's Adriano De Souza and Taj Burrow (Aus) against fellow Aussie Adrian Buchan (Aus). Earlier in round four Australian Taj Burrow (17.34) confirmed his strong title aspirations with a convincing victory against Adrian Buchan (AUS – 12.33) and Julian Wilson (AUS – 9.33) to advance directly into the Quiksilver Pro quarterfinals in on-shore 3 – 4ft waves at Snapper Rocks today. Burrow was forced to change a broken board late in the heat, but already had the heat victory secure with wave scores of 9.27 and 8.07 locked in. Burrow’s trainer Johnny Gannon ran the replacement board up to the Snapper Rocks keyhole with just four minutes remaining. Eleven-time world champion KELLY SLATER (USA) used his 14.00 heat tally to join Burrow in the quarterfinals with a round three win over HEITOR ALVES iBRA – 12.13) and MICHEL BOUREZ (PYF- 11.10). The 40 year-old Floridian overcame a shaky start and changed to a shorter board with more fins after his first wave in the round four heat of the ASP men’s World Tour event. Slater said he got caught off guard for the early morning heat and felt all three surfers in the heat were out of rhythm. Brazil’s Adriano de Souza (15.37) also advanced to the quarterfinals relegating Wright (15.13) and Kerr (9.00) into the elimination round. De Souza said wave selection was key in the tricky conditions. All competitors who finished 2ndand 3rdwill surf in two-man elimination Round 5 heats for a spot in the quarterfinals, while all the winners advanced. A call will be made at 7AM tomorrow morning as to whether competition will resume at Snapper Rocks.

        SNAPPER ROCKS, Queensland/Australia (Monday, 27 February, 2012) – The Quiksilver Pro and Roxy Gold Coast presented by Land Rover, the opening stop on the 2012 Men's and Women's ASP World Championship Tours, ran for the third consecutive day at Snapper Rocks today, and the world's best surfers collectively lifted the high-performance levels today in two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves at Snapper Rocks. Julian Wilson (AUS), 23, 2012 ASP Top 34 sophomore, found form in his Round 3 heat against Adam Melling (AUS), 26, posting the highest heat total of the day, an 18.57 out of a possible 20. On his third different board in as many heats, it appears that the young natural-footer has dialed in his equipment moving forward. "I lost in this round last year in a close one against Taj (Burrow) and went on to lose a bit early in the next few events so I was nervous before that one," Wilson said. "I did want to make a statement. In my first two heats I wasn't myself - it didn't feel like it was coming together for me. Then in that heat I felt a lot better, felt solid on my board and good to get some high scores." Wilson will take on Adrian Buchan (AUS), 29, and Taj Burrow (AUS), 33, in Round 4 of competition. Miguel Pupo (BRA), 20, caused the biggest upset of the event thus far by eliminating perennial event favourite and two-time ASP World Champion Mick Fanning (AUS), 30. Pupo put pressure on Fanning early in the heat by posting a 7.60 (out of a possible 10), and the local Queenslander was unable to recover from a slow start. "I just tried to find good waves because it's pretty tough out there," Pupo said. "I had to win that one, to be on tour you have to beat the big boys. Mick (Fanning) surfs so good. He's got a couple of ASP World Titles and I knew that it would be a tough one. I tried my best." Pupo faces Joel Parkinson (AUS), 30, and Jordy Smith (ZAF), 24, in Round 4 when competition resumes. Owen Wright (AUS), 22, opened the day with an exciting match-up against compatriot Matt Wilkinson (AUS), 23. The pair of goofy-footers gave the crowd a sensational display of backhand surfing at Snapper Rocks, with Wright getting the better of the exchange by a mere 0.40. "That was our first man-on-man heat on the world tour," Wright said. "I was really nervous before the heat, but once I got out there I felt comfortable. I knew he was going to get an 8-point-ride, and I knew I could answer straight back. We went wave for wave, score for score, there was nothing much in that heat. We were paddling in and none of us knew who won and I was just happy that one of us was going through to the next round." Wright will battle Josh Kerr (AUS), 27, and Adriano de Souza (BRA), XX, when competition resumes Kelly Slater (USA), 40, reigning 11-time ASP World Champion and defending Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast winner, once again put on a dominant performance at Snapper Rocks over Fredrick Patacchia (HAW), 30. Slater's signature searing forehand carves saw him earn two scores in the excellent range to easily advance to Round 4. "I could see that Freddy's (Patacchia) game plan was to sit and wait for those open faced waves," Slater said. "I just wanted to get moving. There are a few sneaky ones that don't look good at the peak, but grow down the point. At the start I fell on a couple of good ones, and either one of those could have been a good score. Then I got into a couple of good ones and got some scores, and Freddy never really got into it. Everyone always makes a big deal about weather I'm going to keep going on. When I'm going to quit I'll tell everybody, how about that?" Slater will take on Michel Bourez (PYF), 26, and Heitor Alves (BRA), 29, in Round 4 of the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. Adriano De Souza (BRA), 25, used his experience in his seventh appearance at the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast to take the Round 3 win over ASP World Championship Tour rookie Kolohe Andino (USA), 17. "It was a tough heat for sure," De Souza said. "I respect Kolohe (Andino) a lot, he's only 17-years-old, but he can do a lot of damage out there. I'm feeling good and trying to concentrate on myself, I came here 10 days early and really know the wave out there, and I think my experience from 7 years on tour helped me in that heat. I was trying defend my position in the top 5 and he's trying to do well in his first event, it was a good heat." QUIKSILVER PRO GOLD COAST ROUND 2 RESULTS: HEAT 1: Owen Wright (AUS) 14.90 def.

          SNAPPER ROCKS, Queensland/Australia (Saturday, 25 February, 2012): World No.2 Joel Parkinson (Aus), wildcard Dane Reynolds (USA) and Brazilian wonderboy Gabriel Medina are facing Round Two elimination, but the Kelly Slater (USA) super-show continued on the opening day of the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover.Snapper Rocks turned on a dredging 3-4ft swell on the outgoing tide when the men hit the water following Round One of the Roxy Pro and they didn’t disappoint with a spectacular show. Slater (USA), 40, the 11-times ASP Men’s World Champion left little doubt a 12th World Title was easily achievable with a barrel-riding master class to lock in the day’s highest score of 18.80 for an easy win against Moskova Trials winner Australian Garrett Parkes (12.73) and highly-touted US rookie Kolohe Andino (10.60). Slater locked in two nuggets scoring 8.93 and 9.87 to bring the big Snapper Rocks crowd alive. The recently turned 40 year-old said his nine-point ride lined up perfectly. Adam Melling (AUS) was the giant killer on the first day relegating World No.2 Joel Parkinson (AUS) and dangerous wildcard Dane Reynolds (AUS) to a Round Two elimination heat. In a tight and high quality heat, Melling (15.70), edged out Parkinson (15.43) and Reynolds (14.87), but the Lennox Head surfer admitted to some nerves after letting Parkinson take a potentially heat-winning wave in the dying stages. Parkinson will meet Parkes in their elimination heat and Reynolds with take on Taj Burrow (WA) in his round two match-ups. Burrow was relegated to round two by an inform Fred Pattachia (Haw) who used better positioning in the tricky line-up to advance with ease into round three. Pattachia who entered the event as a replacement surfer for fellow Hawaiina Dusty Payne said it was a bittersweet situation. > > Rookie young gun Gabriel Medina (BRA), 19, is also the facing the prospect of an elimination heat after losing to fellow countryman and Tour veteran Raoni Manteiro, 29. Manteiro prevailed with a score of 11.63 ahead of Australian rookie Yadin Nicol (10.37) and Medina (9.60). Manteiro, who made his debut on the Tour in 2004, was happy to get one over his young rival. World No.5 Adriano de Souza (BRA), 25, opened the Quiksilver Pro with a tidy victory scoring 13.83 to defeat Taylor Knox (10.66) and Pipe Masters champion Kieren Perrow (7.00). Event organisers will reconvene at 6:30am to access conditions for a possible 7:30am start with another promising swell forecast for Day Two. Further Information: mandy.mckinnon@bigpond.com

              Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast (Friday, February 24th) Garrett Parkes (Byron Bay, NSW) has won the final Quiksilver Pro event wildcard and will now face up against 11 time world and defending event champion, Kelly Slater (USA) after taking out the Moskova Trials today in stormy 2-3ft waves at Snapper Rocks on Australia’s Gold Coast. 20 year-old Parkes narrowly defeated Christobal De Col (Per) with a total tally of 12.75 (out of a possible twenty). Parkes now faces the daunting task of taking on surfing’s greatest ever competitor in Slater as well as highly touted Californian world tour rookie, Kolohe Andino (USA) in one of the toughest heats of round 1. However Parkes said he hadn’t yet dwelt on the monumental task ahead but was looking forward to the challenge. A more experienced Parkes will be out to improve upon his 2010 defeat by Taj Burrow (Aus) at the Quiksilver Pro. In the Moskova Women’s Trials current ASP Australasian junior champion Philippa Anderson (Merewether, NSW) will get to see her dream come true when she goes up against world and defending event champion Carissa Moore in round 1 of the Roxy Pro. The 20 year-old proved successful in her third attempt at qualifying for the Roxy Pro – a career highlight for the Merewether surfer who dominated the final to finish with heat total of 15.75 out of twenty. Al three of her opponents were left requiring a two wave combination score on the final siren. Organisers are optimistic of commencing competition in the season-opening ASP World Title events tomorrow with a favourable swell outlook at Snapper Rocks.
