BELLS BEACH, Victoria/Australia (Friday, April 2, 2010) - Challenging one-to-two foot (0.75 metre) waves broke through the Bells Bowl and at Rincon today as the world's best female surfers contested Round 3 of the Rip Curl Women's Pro Bells Beach presented by Ford Fiesta..Event No. 2 on the 2010 ASP Women's World Tour, the Rip Curl Women's Pro took advantage of the swell on offer today as the projection for the waiting period is not favourable. With tricky onshore winds and inconsistent waves, it was the top seeds who dominated the proceedings, winning eight from eight heats..Cheslea Hedges (AUS), 26, former ASP Women's World Champion (2005), was this the round's standout, posting the highest heat total of the day with a 14.54 out of a possible 20, dispatching of Rosanne Hodge (ZAF), 22..Coco Ho (HAW), 18, 2009 ASP Women's World Rookie of the Year, scored a sensational come-from-behind win this morning at the opening heat of the day, edging out 2010 ASP Dream Tour rookie Lee Ann Curren (FRA), 20, in the dying moments of the heat..Ho will take on Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS), 19, in the Quarterfinals of the Rip Curl Women's Pro Bells Beach..Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 22, reigning three-time ASP Women's World Champion, survived a close-fought heat against wildcard Tyler Wright (AUS), 16. Wright, who holds an ASP record as the youngest surfer in history to win an elite event, has beaten Gilmore in the past and was a real threat in today's trying conditions...Photo: joliphotos.com
