With his WCT spot on the line, Pat Gudauskas was hell bent on making the cut for 2013. When prodded on what he needed to do to requalify, Pat said, “I don’t really know. I just hope it’s big and gnarly and I can charge some huge ones.” He got the big and gnarly part, but came up short on making the 2013 WCT cut. But don’t cry for Pat, he’s as psyched as ever to join his lil bro Tanner on the WQS and make it back on the WCT asap. Photo: Checkwood
