It was like Christmas for the Coffin brothers on the final day of the Quiksilver Pro on the Gold Coast. Not because Conner had made the finals, but because as they were busy losing their minds at the bombing, and now vacant, Snapper lineup from their apartment balcony, Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson happened to call and invite them for a step off session.

In a flurry of froth and bubble, the two Coffin bros got their shit together and hit the lineup to tame a few behind-the-rock bombs.
