Wilson edges out Fanning to bag the ASP 4 Star win at Burleigh Heads

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 12 February, 2012 : - - Burleigh Heads Queensland -- In an all-Queensland affair Sunshine Coast surfer Julian Wilson surfed a brilliant final calling on his refined aerial skills to win the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 4 Star Menís World Tour Breaka Burleigh Pro. Itís been an incredible event and I was so looking forward to surfing against any of these guys and we all met in the final which was perfect.Ē

ďWe enter the event to get ready for the upcoming Quiksilver Pro which begins the World Title season and through every heat here Iíve increased my performances, dusted away the cobwebs and feel good right now about winning.Ē Wilsonís aerial skills were decisive in the final after Mick Fanning jumped to a big early lead when he scored an 8.77 in the opening minute.

Wilson patiently waited for decent waves and called on his aerial reverse moves to nail the big scores Ė Mid way through the final Wilson matched Fanningís 8.77 and then late in the final secured the win with a back up 7.77 on his final ride. Not surprisingly Josh Kerr proved to be Wilsonís greatest challenge after he nailed a massive aerial move  to post the highest wave score of the final of 9.23 but he was unable to find a decent enough back up score to overtake Wilson.

ďSecond is good but itís also disappointing, particularly when you get the best wave score in the final but Iím good, itís great preparation and it has been a super fun event with big crowds and good waves.Ē The Burleigh Headland was packed with spectators who enjoyed the dominance of Queenslandís four best surfers in this event and the scenes reminded many of the jam packed Stubbies crowd from events back in the 70ís!

Wilson now heads to Sydney for this weekís Australian Open of Surfing (ASP 6-Star Menís World Tour) before returning to the Gold Coast for the Quiksilver Pro which marks the beginning of the ASP World Title Series events for 2012.

Last year Wilson, 23 years of age,  was the ASP World Title Tourís Rookie of the year finishing in 9th place overall and todayís win sets the scene for his 2012 assault on the World Title. Taj Burrow (who didnít compete this year) won this event in 2010/2011 and then went on to win and place 2nd in the Quiksilver Pro so the eventís history as an ideal warm-up is solid.

The Breaka Burleigh Pro is an ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals) 4-Star rated World Tour event offering USD$95,000 prizemoney. The Breaka Burleigh Pro is proudly supported by Breaka Flavoured Milk, Events Queensland, Surfing Queensland, ASP Australasia, Channel 7, Nova 106.9fm, SEA FM, Ooh!, Australia's Surfing Life, GCCC, XXXX Summer Bright Lager, JR Surfboards, 5 and a half Sunglasses and Air Asia. Daily TV newsfeeds and high quality complimentary digital images along with press releases will be made available throughout the event.
