ASP Surf Whats on Tour 22/6/09

Gabe Kling: Injury Update
Floridian ripper Gabe Kling (USA), 28, enjoyed his first stint amongst the world’s best in 2007. Although missing out on qualification that season, he clawed his way through the ASP World Qualifying Series (WQS) in 2008 to rejoin the elite on the ASP Dream Tour this year. However, after competing in the opening event of the season, Kling injured himself during the ASP WQS 6-Star PRIME O’Neill Cold Water Classic in Tasmania last April and has been out of commission ever since. ASP caught up with Kling to get the scoop on what happened, how he’s coping and what lies ahead.
Searching for Andy Irons with ASL
Former three-time ASP World Champion Andy Irons, 30, decided to take a year away from the pressures of competition in order to re-center himself while planning another attack on the rest of the world’s elite competitors for 2010. Although AI took some time to stir the pot at the Billabong Pro Tahiti as a wildcard, the powerful regular-footer has done a good job of being reclusive since the decision of his sabbatical. Australia’s Surfing Life managed to sneak an interview with Irons, so check out how his downtime has progressed.
Freddy Patachia Invades Rapa Nui by Transworld SURF
Current ASP World No. 9 Fredrick Patacchia (HAW), 27, recently lead an all-Hawaiian expedition to the ends of the Earth – Easter Island, Rapa Nui. Patacchia has had an impressive year so far and with the Hang Loose Santa Catarina Pro around the corner, the Hawaiian is poised to crack the Top 5. Transworld SURF was on hand to get all the dirt from Rapa Nui.
Mr. Price Pro Ballito: ASP 6-Star Time
The international field of up-and-coming competitive talent that comprise the ASP WQS are gearing up for the next critical stop on their quest for a ticket on to the 2010 ASP Dream Tour, the ASP 6-Star Mr. Price Pro Ballito in South Africa. This year’s event will boast the largest field to ever compete in the event, including 200 hungry surfers all vying for their points to better their seed on The Grind. You won’t want to miss any of the action!
O’Neill Cold Water Classic South Africa is ON
Stop No. 3 of five on the O’Neill Cold Water Classic Series is underway and anticipating one of the biggest swells of the year to pummel South Africa’s shores is what should make for wild conditions in Cape Town for the ASP WQS 4-Star event. The first two days of the contest have offered up some chilly barrels for its competitors and who knows what will happen if the predicted swell lights up the coast. Make sure to check it out!
