Tyler Wright has claimed the 2013 Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover over Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS), 22, in punchy two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves at the primary venue of Snapper Rocks.
Event No. 1 of 7 on the 2013 ASP Women’s World Championship Tour (WCT), the Roxy Pro Gold Coast enjoyed a down-to-the-wire finish today with Wright and Fitzgibbons going head-to-head in a fiercely-fought Final.
Stacked to the brim with eager guests hanging on his every word, Gerry Lopez recently took to the state at Surfer, The Bar to engage the crowd at Wanderlust’s famed Speakeasy sessions.
Calm, cool and collected, Lopez has come to embody the best of surfing and his speech this night was meant to draw parallels between the sport of kings and Yoga. Commonly referred to as “Mr. Pipeline” Lopez’s experience in finding zen through yoga walks in lockstep with his efforts to find zen through surfing.
