Steph Gilmore surfing was on point in the Roxy Pro Quarterfinals heat but ran out of time to put the score together against long time rival Carissa Moore

“Surfing against Carissa you have to get two nines to win basically and I knew that,” Gilmore said.

“I had one semi-decent score but I never really felt comfortable. It’s really disappointing to get that score and feel good about it and to paddle back out and just see Carissa stroke into the dreamiest wave. I knew it was over, she doesn’t falter under pressure like that.”

Gilmore recorded 6.50 and 7.67 for a total of 14.17 while Moore’s decisive wave gave her a total of 16.13.

Leading up to the first event of the year Mick Fanning has been dialling in his new batch of DNA’s for the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast. The DNA is the perfect board going into the event knowing that it gives the same feeling and consistency that is expected, and he knows he can just trust. This model allows you push it harder but still without needing a step-up for when it gets bigger.

The DHD Team at Snapper

by DHD Surf

2014 is on, and we’re as excited as ever. The team are pumped and focused on victory, and here at DHD we’re pumped and focused on creating the right equipment to carry them there.

“Congrats again Mick, it was a great night at the ASP awards night, 2013 was another exciting year done and dusted.

 

Now 2014 is rolling in with a bang, looking like we’re going to be getting some good surf for the start of the comp 3-4ft all weekend with good winds.

I’ve been making a bunch of boards for Mick, Steph, & Wilko, and they are looking very sharp, perfect for Snapper and the expected conditions.

I’ve also been busy making a couple of boards for a few of the crew coming in from around the world that want to test out my boards at the event.

Good luck to all the guys and girls, can’t wait for another year of running around the world chasing the team around while the search is on for their next world title.” – Darren Handley

WHAT THEY’RE RIDING

 

 

 

Keep your eyes open at the comp and you just might spot Owen Wright, Alana Blanchard, Mitch Crews, Taj Burrow & Jeremy Flores with some fresh DHD’s under their arms at Snapper.
