Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast: Shea Lopez Pundit Picks 2015Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast: Shea Lopez Pundit Picks his team for the 2015 contest at Snapper or Kirra.
If there’s one thing you need to know about Snapper Rocks, it’s that sand is paramount. The bars that give rise to Snapper’s perfection are the child of the Tweed River dredge pipe that dumps sand just up the point. Throw in an east-southeast swell and you’re left with one of the most mesmerizing waves in the world. However, just what these sandbars will look like when the World Tour opens up shop is the big question. Last week, Cyclone Marcia lit up the coast with perfect conditions, but did she wash away the banks in the process or are we in for a treat? Right now, my fingers are crossed. With that in mind, I’d like to note that I’ve picked the surfers on my team based on their ability to shine whether they’re threading dredging Kirra tubes or toying with playful Snapper Rocks.
