The world’s best have steadily been filtering into Torquay over the last week. And they were quick to take to the Bells Bowl in order to reacquaint themselves with both the wave and full-length rubber – a big change from the tropical conditions on the Gold Coast and one that needs to be adapted to quickly.

The good news is that they arrived straight into a nice swell, and that Happily Stoked was there to capture it all for your viewing pleasure.
