The Quicksilver Pro on the Gold Coast

With squeals of delight I tell my friends tonight if they want to catch up this weekend (and I hope they do), I will be planted down at Snapper Rocks watching the Quicksilver Pro Surfing Competition.

In my mind, one of the best spectator, must-see-events of any sporting or outdoor event.

You literally stand in thigh deep water as the best surfers in the world surf past you (on one of the best breaks in the world). It all comes together for me as a happy blurr. I haven’t missed a year and each year I adore and respect it more than the year before.

This year it feels over in a heart beat and I am so glad that I make the decision to go down every day regardless and start work late.

Aside from the final day, the weather was perfect and the waves sublime.
