    SNAPPER ROCKS, Queensland/Australia (Sunday, March 4, 2012) – The final day of the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover culminated today with perennial ASP World Title threat Taj Burrow (AUS), 33, and four-time ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 24, taking the respective wins in clean two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves at the primary venue of Snapper Rocks. Gilmore is back on top after an emotional victory at the Roxy Pro Gold Coast at her home break of Snapper Rocks today. Gilmore, 24, scored a 9.2 wave in the last minute to defeat Sydney’s Laura Enever 16.37 to 14.2 in the 30-minute final to reclaim the No.1 spot on the ASP world rankings.  A position Gilmore lost to Moore exactly one year ago at the Snapper Rocks event.   Gilmore said this season already feels like a complete flip-side to last year, when she was attacked by a man wielding an iron bar at her Tweed Heads home shortly before the first event of the year. Gilmore added that the women’s standard was unsurpassed this year and twenty-year-old Enever was a definite contender. Gilmore advanced to the final with a convincing 18.30 to 15.00 win against Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS) in the semi-final, while Enever locked in a final-minute ride to defeat Tyler Wright (AUS) 16.70 to 16.17 in the first semi-final. Enever went one better than she did at last year’s Roxy Pro Gold Coast when she finished third to feature in her first world tour final.  The now world ranked no.2 surfer pushed Gilmore all the way but was forced to settle for second against the in-form Gilmore. The win was Gilmore’s fourth Roxy Pro Gold Coast title after victories in 2010, 2009 and as a wildcard in 2005. Her wins in 2010 and 2009 were the launch pad for her successful World Title campaigns, while her victory today was a triumphant return to the Snapper Rocks victory dais. A gracious Enever congratulated Gilmore and was ecstatic to make her first World Tour final. Bells Beach will host the next ASP Men’s and Women’s World Title events from April 3 to 14.

      SNAPPER ROCKS, Queensland/Australia (Sunday, March 4, 2012) – The final day of the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover culminated today with perennial ASP World Title threat Taj Burrow (AUS), 33, and four-time ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 24, taking the respective wins in clean two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves at the primary venue of Snapper Rocks. Burrow defeated dangerous South American Adriano De Souza (BRA), 25, in a Final that came down to the wire. De Souza caught a wave in the dying minutes and launched into a massive air-reverse, requiring a 7.87 out of a possible 10 to take the lead. The judges deliberated until after the siren sounded and when it was announced that De Souza came a mere 0.27 short, Burrow was chaired up the beach and declared the 2012 Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast champion. De Souza finished runner-up at the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast for the second time, after coming 2nd to Joel Parkinson (AUS), 30, in 2009. De Souza was easily one of the event’s top performers this season with gouging turns and inverted aerials taking him to a podium finish. Burrow used a heat-high wave score of 9.43 to win with a total of 15.86 to de Souza’s 15.60 much to the delight of a raucous capacity Snapper Rocks crowd who adopted the West Australian as one of their own. Burrow assumes the No.1 ranking as the World Tour heads to Bells Beach from April 3-14, while de Souza on No.2 is well placed to improve on last year’s finish of fifth on the world rankings. Snapper Rocks has proved a happy hunting ground for Burrow, who has appeared in the past three finals, winning in 2010 and finishing second to Kelly Slater (USA) last year. Burrow said victory was sweet after last year’s loss to Kelly Slater. Earlier in the semi-finals, Burrow defeated South African Jordy Smith 15.56 to 14.20 while de Souza defeated crowd favourite Josh Kerr (AUS) 14.16 to 13.57 in the dying seconds. Burrow was forced to work hard for the spoils with a tough road to the final including defeating opponents such as Dane Reynolds (USA), Julian Wilson (Aus), Adrian Buchan (Aus) and Smith.

        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
