Roxy Pro & Quiksilver Pro Surfing, Snapper Rocks Superbank, Gold Coast, Australia

Hi all

February and March are ‘Pro Surfing Months’ here in South East Queensland, Australia. First I visited the Breaka Burleigh Surf Pro at Burleigh Heads on Australia’s Gold Coast, and then more recently I visited the Roxy Pro Women’s Professional Surfing competition and the Quiksilver Pro Men’s comp at the famous Snapper Rocks Superbank, also on the Gold Coast. Here are some pics from the Roxy Pro and the Quiksilver Pro:
