The Quick pro kicked off yesterday afternoon at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast in Australia. Rusty team rider Josh Kerr will be competing in the event against the top surfers in the world as they kick off the 2013 WCT season. Kerrzy's local knowledge and wave selection will be key during the comp to push through the heats, and post the scores to get the points.

Kerr started off 2012 in fighting form with his fifth Quarterfinal draw against reigning 11-time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater. In 2011 Kerrzy and Slates had matched up four times with Slater advancing every case. However, Kerr ended the drought and advanced thanks to a massive forehand air-reverse at the end of the heat.

Slater said of the heat “I turned around and Josh (Kerr) was on a pretty nice one and he got that air at the end. He’s always going to be a threat in conditions like this where he can throw big airs. I got Josh a few times last year, we had four Quarterfinal battles last year where I got him, so he owed me a couple. It never feels good to lose, but I’m happy for Josh.”

Kerrzy took an equal 3rd in the contest when he fell to Adriano in the Semifinals but a great start for Josh in 2012!
