Results – Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast and Roxy Pro Gold Coast 2018
Congratulations to Julian Wilson and Lakey Peterson.
Julian Wilson came in first place in Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast, and Lakey Peterson came in first place in Roxy Pro Gold Coast.
In January 2018, Julian injured his shoulder which nearly put him out of the Gold Coast event, however…
"Watching the birth of my first child gave me an unbelievable strength to just suck up the pain in my shoulder, and come down here, and do what I needed to do."
Lakey Peterson said:
“I've been working for seven years to get another win. It's been a while, so the hard work pays off. My goal is to stay steady the whole year and just believe in myself and enjoy the ride.”
