The 10 Men to Watch Out for at The Gold Coast Quiksilver Pro

The Quik Pro is this weekend, and these are the leading contenders in the men's event

Hyped since he was kid, if you believed what a lot of the surfing media were saying, he should have already have had a world title under his belt. But Kolohe has had a tough couple of years on tour, in fact the last two have seen him having to re-qualify through the Qualifying Series. So why should things change here?

Well he has had close calls, difficult first round heat seedings, and often comes up against the likes of Kelly Slater and a wild card, where he has just been edged out in epic heats. So it’s time for that little bit of luck to swing his way, and back his undeniable talent.

He’s also devastating in fast punchy right handers, and although he has drawn Tahitian Michel Bourez and Australian Owen Wright, it’s time for Kolohe to shine. Expect him to make the round before the quarters at least , get on a roll and with his aerial repertoire he could go further.
