Update March 9th
Tyler Wright has claimed the 2013 Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover over Sally Fitzgibbons in punchy two-to-three foot waves at Snapper Rocks. Sally held the lead for the majority of the final but Ty caught a wave in the dying moments and tore it apart for a 9.20 out of a possible 10, taking the heat lead and the win.
 “I don’t even know what to say right now. I wasn’t even thinking out there. I was singing to myself and when I came in, my sister said ‘I was singing right along with you’. That little wave came in and hugged the bank and I just left it all on the wave. To get the score and the win like that, it’s incredible.”
 “I’m not even thinking about the world title. I had a rough season last year and I took a good break over the off-season, got a motorbike and just relaxed. To come back and get a win in the first event, it feels great and I’m just going to enjoy it.”
Tyler is now the leader for the 2013 ASP Women’s World Title. Congratulations Tyler.

The KOTG Final ran just before the Roxy Final and Mikey Wright combo-ed the field for another emphatic victory. Well done grom

Update March 10th
Mello smashed Damo Hobgoblin in round 2 finishing with a 15.90 total and a lot of confidence. A lucky break for Adam in round 3 with JJFlo pulling out due to an ankle injury from the expression session. The walk through puts Mello into round 4 no loser heat vs Flores and Taj. Owen was ripping but the judges decided that his opponent surfed 0.01 points better on his 2 scoring waves and O was eliminated taking a 25th. Heavy.

Update March 12th
Mello went down to Parko in a tight heat at Snapper and finished 9th. Adam held the lead 3 times but couldn't find the right wave to ditch his 4.83. This result equates to 4000 points and a great start to 2013. Well done mate.
