Mick Fanning Begins his 2010 Season At The Breaka Burleigh Pro!
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 February, 2010 : - - Gold Coast Queensland: Taj Burrow (AUS) today etched his name into the history books, claiming the inaugral 2010 Association Of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Qualifying Series (WQS) 4-Star, Breaka Burleigh Pro. Burrow defeated Josh Kerr (AUS), Owen Wright (AUS) and Dusty Payne (HAW) who finished second to fourth respectively in an exhilarating four-man final.
Burrow exploded out of the gates with a blistering 9.10 (out of a possible 10), going on to register a combined two-wave total of 17.30 (out of a possible 20) to Kerrs 15.67, Wrights 14.60 and Paynes 8.73. Its so great to be back at Burleigh Heads, Ive spent a lot of time here over the years and its such a great wave, so to be able to win the very first competition here in so long is just great, Burrow said.
The whole event has been epic
the waves were great and it was some of the most high performance surfing Ive seen, there was so many aerials and all the competitors were just going so big
it was awesome to be a part of, he said. Burrow thrilled thousands of spectators lining Burleigh Heads in what is the first professional surfing event to be staged at the iconic break in almost 10 years.
In a dream preparation, Burrow who also won last years ASP World Tour season ending Pipeline Masters, will now head into next weeks first ASP World Tour event of 2010 at Snapper Rocks as one of the hot favorites. This is the ideal start to the season for me and I feel more ready than ever for the season ahead.
