Welcome to the Show - Quiksilver & Roxy Pro Event Guide

For more than 40 years the Gold Coast of Australia has been a bedrock of professional surfing. It's produced more world champions than any other place on the planet, thanks to its ample supply of waves and talent that have made Coolangatta the epicenter of the Australian surf scene. 

The Superbank at Snapper Rocks is the preeminent stage, supplying waves that allow surfers to showcase the highest caliber of performance surfing just yards away from thousands of cheering fans. There's no better venue to launch a World Title battle.
