The 2019 World Surf League season has kicked off with a bang on the Gold Coast this week with a series of surprise results with 11x World Champ Kelly Slater being bundled out in Round 2

Today the surprises have continued which has seen an upset reminiscent of a young Gilmore hunting down the seasoned CT professionals with the youngest member on tour Caroline Marks eliminating the hometown favourite “The Queen of Snapper” Stephanie Gilmore in a blockbuster performance this morning at Duranbah.

This means that Gilmore’s Jeep leader jersey will be moving on ahead of the Bells Beach event,  but we are sure we’ll see a fired up Steph and a formidable Kelly Slater looking to find their stride for 2019.
