|World’s Best Surfers Join Quiksilver Iconic For A Reason Expression Session
After the competition wrapped for the day at G-Land, some of the world’s best surfers joined Quiksilver for their Iconic For A Reason Expression Session, riding iconic surfboards that have helped shape the future of surfing in one way or another.
Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), Carissa Moore (HAW), Kanoa Igarashi (JPN), Filipe Toledo (BRA), Jackson Baker (AUS), Isabella Nichols (AUS), Tatiana Weston-Webb (BRA), and Caio Ibelli (BRA) got to surf in a one 35-minute heat format where the commentators picked one male and one female winner based on overall performance. Competitors rode boards that helped shape the surfing in one way or another, and that have historical significance to G-Land and Indonesian surfing, as well as to Quiksilver.
The winners of the Quiksilver Iconic For A Reason Expression Session were Moore and Toledo. Moore rode a replica of the original ‘Simon Anderson Thruster,’ while Toledo rode a Terry Fitzgerald single fin. Toledo picked the same board he rode in the session, while Moore opted for the Gerry Lopez single fin.
