Kelly Slater (USA) had quite the case of FOMO (fear of missing out) as he debated the inflight options on his long journey to Australia -- @kellyslater: 14 hours on @Qantas to make food choices, watch movies and think about all the waves I've missed on the Gold Coast the last few days. #CominInHot to surf with my 400 best friends! #SaveSomeForMe

Cyclone Marcia had a lot of people worried about the conditions at Snapper Rocks, but not Stephanie Gilmore (AUS) who took advantage of Marcia's presence -- @stephaniegilmore: Surf spam. Marcia personally didn't show up to Coolangatta but she definitely sent da waves. @waxyphotography
