#TOURNOTES: Filipe Toledo's finals day prep and crucial BTS insight

While we all wished the Quiksilver Pro was held a few weeks ago, the maiden event shone through in fine colour. We saw less familiar faces in the later rounds and Lennox local, Stu Kennedy, on a tear, riding Slater Designs and slaying Gabriel Medina and John John Florence. A new season’s upon us and #TOURNOTES is still bringing the best behind the scenes insight in surfing. Here, Mark Richards talks contest momentum, something Filipe Toledo had more than anyone else at Snapper. Unfortunately the young cat from Brazil went from lofty elevation to bedridden due to his groin injury in the semis. And, Kara, the rashie queen, keeps John John and Michel Bourez in check, so she doesn’t get sacked. All this and more direct to your pixel device.
