8 non-contest waves in 78-degree water!

Welcome back to Stab's view of the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast – or more importantly, what goes on around it. Certain questions perplex us all. Who does that perfectly formed derriere at the beginning of the clip belong to? Does Kelly Slater get burned more now he’s stickerless? (Lots of bald dudes in white tees on the Gold Coast!) And, most importantly, when will that fabulously talented South African put a whole year together and fulfil his destiny? Here’s a scene report live and direct from the Quiksilver Pro. Being free of shackles produces the sweetest of melodies!
