Quiksilver Pro Round Two Completed

The Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover, the opening stop on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour, was back on today with the elimination Round 2 completed in clean three-to-four foot (1 metre) conditions at Snapper Rocks.
Jeremy Flores (FRA), 23, snuck through a tight heat against Jadson Andre (BRA), 21. Flores and Andre both pulled into multiple tubes but failed to find exits, until Flores threaded a classic behind-the-rock barrel to score an 8.17 (out of a possible 10) and take the win.
"I knew there was going to be some barrels on the low tide," Flores said. "I wanted to get barrelled, I got a few and was so close to coming out and didn't make any except the one. Maybe it was the pressure. I'm feeling a lot of pressure at this event, like I'm a rookie again. I don't know why, this is my sixth year on tour. I'm only 23-years-old, but kind of feel like an old guy with all these rookies. It's good it makes us work more. I've been trying to push myself and do some turns that I haven't done before."
