Schedule: Roxy Pro Gold Coast Quarterfinals ON at 7:30am, possible finish today. Conditions: Two-to-Three foot (1 metre) waves at Snapper Rocks. Light wind. Scattered showers.
Official Assessment: The swell has decreased slightly this morning with two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves and low-tide conditions. The swell today remains fairly clean on the banks, and we'll assess conditions this morning to see if more water improves the playing field. Combination of major maneuvers continue to score very well out at Snapper Rocks and the pointbreak aspect of the venue lends itself to the speed, power and flow components of the criteria. Important to note, however, that surfers avoid getting bogged down into doing the same turn over and over out here. We want to see variety of repertoire and those who go above the lip will be well-rewarded.. - Rich Porta, ASP Head Judge
