Now that the dust has well and truly settled on the Gold Coast, and almost every post-event hangover faded. Let’s take a look back at some of the finest moments captured throughout the event by Simon ‘Swilly’ Williams. Kelly’s freesurfing, the fire of Joel Parkinson in the early rounds, Medina’s win over Kelly, the domination of Steph Gilmore and who could forget the triumph of Owen Wright, not only winning the event but slaying a host of demons in the process. Glorious!
