The schedule for the 2012 ASP competition has just been released. According to the document, Australia will be the first nation to host an event with the Quicksilver Pro on the Gold Coast to take place between the 25th of February and the 7th of March.
The first event on the northern hemisphere will take place in Trestles, California, 8 months after the first title event! But there is no need to grow desperate, since many prime and star events are scheduled for those 8 months.
