One week to go until the waiting periods for the 2015 Quik Pro and Roxy Pro begin on Australia’s Gold Coast. With the area currently feeling the impact of cyclone season, there’s a solid chance that we could see some sizable swell for the beginning of the waiting periods. Here are the details you need to set your Fantasy Surfer lineup:

WHO: The WSL Men’s Top 34 + 2 wildcards & The WSL Women’s Top 17 + 1 wildcard

WHAT: The first events of the men’s and women’s 2015 WSL Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour

WHEN: Waiting periods for both men’s and women’s events begin February 28th and run until March 11th.

WHERE: The Gold Coast of Australia, or more specifically Snapper Rocks, is in Queensland. Queensland is 15 hours ahead of the U.S. East Coast and 18 hours ahead of the U.S. West Coast. This means that 7 a.m. Saturday, February 28th in Queensland is 4 p.m. Friday, February 27th in New York, and 1 p.m. Friday, February 27 in Los Angeles. Plan accordingly. If you do not fall into either of those time zones and want to know the exact time difference between your area and Queensland, we recommend visiting for an exact listing.
