CYCLONE SWELLS AND THE QUIKSILVER PRO
This weekend the Quiksilver/Roxy Pro kicks off at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast. Although the swell is predicted to drop, we’re hoping that it sticks around long enough for the competitors to put on a good show.
So far 2015 has really turned it on in the wave department, the Gold Coast has been blessed with some epic waves throughout January and February.
Last week cyclone Marcia had most Queenslanders ducking for cover, but surfers were out there getting their froth on, making the most of the picture perfect conditions.
Unlike North Queensland, South-East Queensland was lucky enough to escape the true force of Marcia, instead reaping the rewards with pumping waves and barrels galore.

The Gold Coast points turned it on for the crowds (and when we say crowds, we mean CROWDS), and Snapper Rocks to Greenmount, Kirra, Burleigh Point and Currumbin Alley were all-time. With overhead drainpipe barrels and super long rides, if you surfed this swell there’s a chance you scored the best waves of your life.
With the Quiksilver Pro just around the corner, many of the competitors were on the coast when this swell hit and got some serious time in the tube.
Listen as Mick Fanning describes this latest swell that hit the Gold Coast.
The 2015 Quiksilver/Roxy Pro is set to start tomorrow, Saturday 28 February and will run through to 11 March.
