West Aus Warm-Ups

WA's been firing since the CT rolled into town, and the Traktor Team's thrown themselves into everything that's come their way. From huge walls at Main Break, to mutant slabs at The Box, and a few crazy ramps at North Point, there's a whole lot of variety popping up around Margaret River. And the best part? We should see almost all of it come into play throughout the contest. Full gallery and board breakdowns below:

With so many different conditions forecast for the main event, Jules brought a whole range of new shortboards and step-ups, plus a few favourite Monsta 6's from the Gold Coast. This one's 6'0 1/2" x 18 3/4" x 2 3/8" x 28L (he's 6'0" / 80kg).

Unlike a lot of spots in the world, 'round here's mostly about harnessing speed rather than generating it yourself. Julian, burning through a chunky North Point shoulder. Photo Ryan Miller

Sal arrived in WA early enough to try plenty of step-ups at solid Main Break, and it shows. New lines on a 6'1" x 17 5/8" x 2 1/4" x 24.3L Forget Me Not round pin (she's 5'7" / 57kg). Photo Trevor Moran

Sal, carving through a foamy one at Margies. While 6'1" might not seem like much of a step up, remember her normal shortboard is a 5'8 1/2" x 17 5/8" x 2 3/16" x 22.3L Monsta 6. That's a lot more rail! Photo Trevor Moran

Ace, fitting a big backhand crack into North Point's shallow end section. At 5'9" / 76kg, he rides a 5'10" x 18 5/8" x 2 3/8" x 26L Monsta 6. Photo Trevor Moran

Fred, all power. At 6'1" / 81kg, he rides a 6'0" x 19" x 2 7/16" x 28.5L Monsta 6. Photo Trevor Moran

Like the rest of the team, Fred grabbed a bunch of Forget Me Not's for WA to suit the extra push and curve in the majority of the waves. Some of his go-to sizes are 6'0" x 18 7/8" x 2 3/8" x 27.6L (a touch less width and thickness than his M6), and 6'2 1/2" x 18 7/8" x 2 3/8" x 28.5L (slight step up). Photo Trevor Moran

Whenever there's big tubes and big ramps, Mikey's there. At 6'0" / 78kg, he rides a 6'0" x 18 7/8" x 2 3/8" x 28.1L Monsta 6. Photo Trevor Moran

You'd think something that high and that inverted might be a throwaway, but not for Mikey. He came within a fraction of landing this thing... Which might mean yet another day of hucking himself until he stomps it. Monsta 6 round tail - 6'1" x 18 7/8" x 2 3/8" x 28.5L. Photo Ryan Miller
