Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast Called ON 12/3

Kelly Slater (USA) taking on Brazilian rookie Italo Ferreira (BRA), who caused an upset in Round 2 yesterday by eliminating Adrian Buchan (AUS). Reigning WSL Champion Gabriel Medina (BRA) faces Glenn Hall (IRL) in Round 3 Heat 6, followed by Mick Fanning (AUS) and Dusty Payne (HAW) in Heat 7. Surfline, official forecaster for the World Surf League, are calling for: We’ll see a further build in E tradeswell on Thursday and into Friday in both size and power, although we are not expecting a major swell. Stronger SE flow will also develop, especially in the afternoons, for the second half of the week.  Tropical Cyclone Pam is currently located just east of Vanuatu and is on a slow south-southwest track. Although Pam does not look to directly provide surf before the contest waiting period closes, it will help to enhance the tradeswell a bit over the next couple days.          The Quiksilver and Roxy Pro Gold Coast will be webcast LIVE at WorldSurfLeague.com. The world’s best surfing will also be broadcast LIVE on Fox Sports in Australia, MCS Extreme in France, EDGE Sports in China, South Korea Malaysia and other territories and the WSL’s new partner in Brazil, Globo TV.
