Beautiful One Day, Way Less Than Perfect The Next

While Julian is the only Traktor team rider left waiting for the finale at the end of the week, Parko, Dusty and Ace all won heats on a range of performer series boards, with Ryan and Jeremy suffering narrow losses after ripping in the free surfs. On the women's side of things, the event is still wide open, with Sally already through to the quarters and looking good on her new batch of Monsta 6's. Victorian gold plus quiver breakdowns, below: The first morning for most of the WSL ensemble on the Surf Coast might not have been huge, but it sure was pretty. Ryan Callinan on a Monsta 6 in his standard size for everyday waves - 6'0" x 18 7/8" x 2 3/8" x 27.9L. On the bigger days, Ryan chose a slight step up at 6'1 1/2".

Being a similar size to Joel, Ryan and Dusty (approx 6'0" and 80kg), JW was on a range of Monsta 6's in similar sizes to the other boys - both favourites from Snapper and a few new ones for the rest of the Aussie CT leg. Photo Trevor Moran When the swell, wind and tide all conspired to make conditions incredibly powerful and tricky on Easter Sunday, Dusty chose a 5'11 1/2" x 18 7/8" x 2 3/8" Monsta 6 that ended up getting him past Josh Kerr. Photo Trevor Moran Ace, always one of the fastest on a rail. With a new quiver of Monsta 6's getting rave reviews after his quarter final finish at Snapper (5'11" x 18 3/4" x 2 5/16" x 26.7L), Bucko stuck with the Monsta's until the surf really picked up, at which point he chose an old favourite Forget Me Not round pin as a step up - 6'0" x 18 5/8" x 2 3/8" x 27L. This is similar to the board he would ride somewhere like Teahupo'o, but thicker. Photo Trevor Moran Sally, slicing apart a dreamy Surf Coast wall at golden hour. Her go to Monsta 6 sizes are 5'8" x 17 5/8" x 2 1/4" x 22.3L // 5'9" x 17 3/4" x 2 1/4" x 22.7L // 5'10" x 17 5/8" x 2 1/4" x 23L. Photo Lucas Townend eremy left the Gold Coast with a very finely tuned rail game, and it shows. His latest batch of Monsta 6's include a few different sizes to keep him covered for a range of conditions throughout the Australian CT events - 5'8 1/2" x 18 1/4" x 2 1/4" x 24.4L // 5'9 1/2" x 18 1/4" x 2 1/4" x 24.6L // 5'10 1/2" x 18 1/4" x 2 1/4" x 24.9L.
