Whats on at the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast 2017

Want to watch the world’s best surfers at the world’s best sandbar? Yeah, us too. That’s why we put on the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast every year. Never disappoints.

But, as great as the surf contest may be, the event is so much more than high-fives and heat wins. It’s a party. A festival. A gathering of people, art, culture, chaos and classic times. Quite simply, it’s an event you can’t miss - trust us.

And trust this guide. It’s our official list of recommendations for what to do at the Quik Pro. Consider it your fun atlas.

This Wave

It’s amazing when it all comes together. When a storm creates a wave that ripples across an entire ocean, finds its way to a foreign shore and is met by someone who is willing and able to ride it perfectly. The whole process is bizarre. And beautiful. And mostly insane. We couldn’t love it more.

Every wave is unique and, for lack of a better word, they all have personality. In Hawaii, a single one can make or break a career, humble you, hurt you, kill you or create a euphoric experience you’ll never forget. This season, we’re committed to showing you the wildest moments between man and wave meet. Our riders are going to give you raw and honest insight on what made the best (or most brutal) waves they’ve wrangled unique. We’re calling it #ThisWave and we’re inviting you to join us for the ride — follow us on Instagram to do just that.

We will keep this page updated with all the latest #thiswave posts, so keep an eye on it.

Introducing #ThisWave — our way of sharing Hawaii with you this season. Waves here are truly special. A single one can make your career, break your career, humble you, hurt you, kill you or give you a euphoric experience you’ll never forget. They each have their own story and starting now, our riders are going to tell those stories by giving you raw and honest insight on what made the best waves they’ve wrangled unique. To start, here’s @koarothman with a memory of a beautiful mutant from last year. "I wasn’t even sure if #ThisWave was going to be a good one. I was sitting in a weird spot — definitely not where I think the best ones come in — and the sun was going down so it was already kind of dark, but I just whipped it and went anyway. When I got to the bottom, I saw it throwing and realized how big the barrel was. It wasn’t so bad for a wave to come in on.”

Connor O’Leary: On Realizing A Dream

It was heartbreaking. More than enough to haunt even the headstrong.

Last year, Connor O’Leary finished 15th on the World Qualifying Series. That’s two spots away from World Tour qualification — which means a year’s worth of hard work, hundreds of flights, close wins, narrow losses and a rollercoaster of emotion all equated to a painful pile of nothing.
