The final day we were all hoping for but didn't dare dream could actually happen! Incredibly well deserving champions Owen Wright and Stephanie Gilmore, plus amazing runner-up performances from Wilko and Lakey. Photo Trevor Moran.

Fred's first ever CT event as a member of the top 34 is just around the corner, and the big fella's settling in just fine. At 6'1" / 81kg, he rides a 6'0" x 19" x 2 7/16" x 28.5L Monsta 6. Photo Trevor Moran
Manly's been a mix of running rip bowls and super fun A-frames all week for the Australian Open, and so far Julian owns the performance of the event thanks to this ridiculous alley oop to air rev combination. Jules' home on the Sunshine Coast sees pretty similar surf for most of the year, along with 100s of other towns around the world, and because of this, his Air 17 is built for exactly these conditions. Average to decent/punchy beachbreaks, and high performance surfing. Board breakdown, below (he's 6'0" / 80kg): AIR 17 - 6'0 1/2" x 18 3/4" x 2 3/8" x 28.2L

Julian's thrown down a handful of the best video parts in the world over the last few years, but this one might just be his best yet. From all-time Cloudbreak to perfect Keramas and some ridiculous performances at home on the Sunshine Coast, Wayward is an absolute masterpiece that we still can't quite wrap our heads around.

Almost that time of year again! Jules always goes pink with his Quik Pro Gold Coast quiver as a part of his support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, with art either by his talented mum Nola, or our resident sprayer Adrian Turner (above).
Exactly six weeks from now the WSL's 2017 CT circus kicks off on the Gold Coast, and the Traktor Team are all starting to dial in boards for whatever Snapper might throw at them for the season opener! Read More

2017's started with a mixed bag of waves on the Gold Coast, from almost pumping, to super average and plenty of classic fun little summer days in between. So, with lots of surfing to do and plenty of different waves around, JS has gone ahead and shaped himself a whole new quiver! Read More
