Phil’s Blog # 2 – Quiksilver Gold Coast: This place Rocks!

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 27 February, 2012 : - - With the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast underway, Quiksilver would like to introduce you to Phil Perez our guest blogger during the event. Phil won his job as the Quiksilver Pro’s official blogger after our “Surf, Sun and Social Networking” competition with Tourism Australia.

After traveling to the Gold Coast from Florida, Phil will use his background as a photographer and passion for surfing to document the highlights of the Gold Coast event. After his adventure in Queensland, Phil will continue south down the coast for some relaxation and more surfing in Byron Bay.

Well, I got to start my day by watching from the front row what everyone was saying would be the match-up of the event between Dane Reynolds and Taj Burrow, and it definitely did not disappoint. They both killed it, but Burrow took it in the end when Dane couldn’t get a good enough 2nd scoring ride.  The waves were really fun today, and I spent the rest of the day surfing.  Oh yeah, I got a massage in between sessions, too.  This place rocks!
