  • Oakley's Patrick Gudauskas, Adam Melling, Nate Yeomans, and Jadson Andre Celebrate Making Dream Tour

    Oakley’s Patrick Gudauskas, Adam Melling, Nate Yeomans and Jadson Andre qualify for the 2010 ASP Dream Tour. After a grueling season on the WQS, they will be preparing for their opening event, the Quiksilver Pro on the Gold Coast on February 27, 2010. The other destinations will include Bells Beach, Brazil, South Africa, USA, Tahiti, France, Spain and Hawaii. In 2008, Patrick Gudauskas was only two places shy of making the tour. Instead of wallowing in disappointment, Patrick used that energy to make sure he made it in 2009. His hunger to win showed and after he, as he says, “went balls to the walls,” Patrick deservedly qualified with a final rating of 2nd on the WQS.
