Where Will They Run?

The Quiksilver Pro kicks off this Saturday and thanks to the cyclonic weather the Gold Coast has been dealing with the past couple of weeks Snapper Rocks is not looking too flash. There've been plenty of waves up and down the coast, from Burleigh to Kirra to the odd secret beachie, but the main event bank ain't looking so grand.

Yesterday we caught up with a few of the competitors as FCS launched their latest fin system – more to come on this soon – and asked them where they've been surfing over the last week, and where they think the contest will run.
