Cory Lopez has been granted a wildcard slot into the 2011 World Tour event at Snapper Rocks. Cory missed the WT cut by one spot last year and is the first injury alternate should anyone pull out of an event. Dane Reynolds has a hurt knee and decided not to surf in the event so Cory got in. When the contest starts he’ll surfs in heat 3 against Mick Fanning and Bobby Martinez in round 1. Cory placed second to Joel Parkinson in this event back in 2002. Contest may start today (it’s Sat 26th in Aus). To watch live CLICK HERE. Good luck Cory.
