Burrow and Gilmore win

Sydney Morning Herald "Stephanie Gilmore sent a clear warning to rivals after she and Taj Burrow clinched an Australian double in the season-opening surfing world championship events on the Gold Coast." by Tony Bartlett

'Local heroine Gilmore showed she was back in the mood to secure a fifth world title as she snatched victory from countrywoman Laura Enever with a 9.2 wave in the last minute to win the Roxy Pro final 16.37 to 14.2.

'Burrow gave early hope that an Australian can stop Kelly Slater running off with a 12th men's world crown as he won a thrilling Quiksilver Pro final from Brazil's Adriano De Souza, while 40-year-old Slater fell to Gold Coast's Josh Kerr in the quarters.'
