The scaffolding is gone and the halls of the Rainbow Place Apartments are no longer slippery with sea water from the dripping-wet signature shorts of your favorite WCT surfers. The Quiksilver Pro is done and dusted and it unfortunately saw a not-so-Gold Coast. But the few that chose to stick around after the contest were delightfully greeted with cyclone Pam – who kindly brought gifts in the form of offshore winds and stand-up barrels. Ideal conditions for some post-contest frustration release. Here, we have Jordy Smith, Matt Banting, Davey Cathels, Dion Atkinson, Ryan Hipwood and more enjoying all the things that the waiting period couldn’t do.
