Saturday (19 February) saw the final heats & quarter finals of the Breaka Burleigh Pro Surfing Competition at Burleigh Heads on Australia’s Gold Coast. Although the surf was very small (on the grand final day as well), I enjoyed the day and the professional surfers were brilliant at making ‘plenty’ from very small waves. The winner for the second year in succession was Taj Burrow. Here are some pics (if you like, you can click on any photo to be taken to that pic within the gallery):
