News provided by ASP World Tour on 26 February 2006

Anticipation for the beginning of both the Quiksilver Pro (men) and the Roxy Pro (women), being staged on Queensland, Australia’s Gold Coast, is at an all time high as swell forecasts indicate that conditions will see waves reach well above head height over the next few days.

The Quiksilver and the Roxy Pro events are the first on the Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour and the ASP Women’s World Tour schedule and given the “down to the wire” finishes on both tours last season all are anticipating the standard of both tours to reach unprecedented heights in 2006.

“The swell has built throughout the day today and will continue to hold through to tomorrow,” said ASP President and avid weather watcher Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew. “Tomorrow we should see waves of around 1.5 to two metres (five to six foot) and it is predicted that the wind will also be favourable early on. The trialists are really going to have some quality waves.”

The Quiksilver Pro Trials for the men will begin tomorrow morning from 7am local time and competitors will be battling it out with the hope of claiming the final slot in the draw for the main event.

Apart from the regular 45 contestants who compete on the Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour, two wildcards plus the winner of the trials complete the 48 man lineup.

The two wildcards have been given to exciting up-and-comers Jeremy Flores (REU) and Luke Munro (AUS).

Yesterday evening (Saturday, 25 February) saw the surfers swap wetsuits for penguin suits as they glammed up for surfing’s night of nights – the Association of Surfing Professionals 2005 awards night.

Kelly Slater (USA) was officially crowned 2005 Foster’s ASP Men’s World Tour champion in the ceremony and Chelsea Georgeson (AUS) was crowned 2005 ASP Women’s World Tour champion.

Both were extremely gracious when accepting their awards paying homage to their respective tour’s runners up in Andy Irons (HAW) and Sofia Mulanovich (PER) who both pushed the eventual winners creating what has been labelled the best finish to both tours in many years.

Other awards handed out on the night were:

Most Improved:
Phil Macdonald (AUS)
Trudy Todd (AUS)

Rookie Of The Year:
Fred Patacchia (HAW)
Clare Bevilacqua (AUS)

ASP World Qualifying Series Champions:
