Trials Start Today at Snapper

mick fanning world tourAmidst speculation that recent weeks of being hammered by La Nina weather had ripped out a lot of the sand that makes Snapper Rocks the world-class break that it is, it appears that all is well as the Komunity Project Trials of the 2008 Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast are set to get underway at Snapper. As of last night most of the Gold Coast was in the 4-6 ft. range with winds blowing offshore. If the pattern continues to hold it there will be some very rippable conditions.

Earlier in the week, ASP Tour President Wayne ‘Rabbit’ Bartholomew voiced his concern over the havoc wreaked by the storms that have pounded the Gold Coast.

Two weeks ago I was still concerned, but desirable conditions have since cooperated in streaming sand back into Snapper and with another week’s pumping I think we’ll be okay.

It looks like Rabbit was right on and Snapper appears to be coming to form. With as stoked as we all are on this years tour, did we really think it would happen any other way?

The 16 trialists are Dale Richards (AUS), Clay Marzo (HAW), Chris Salisbury (AUS), Troy Brooks (AUS), Garrett Parkes (AUS), Alain Riou (PYF), Ry Craike (AUS), Shane Bevan (AUS), Tamaroa McComb (PYF), Jadson Andre (BRA), Trevor Tripcony (AUS), Corey Ziems (AUS), Jay Phillips (AUS), Mitch Coleburn (AUS) and Blake Ainsworth (AUS).
