BELLS BEACH, Victoria/AUS (Wednesday, April 12, 2017) Matt Wilkinson (AUS) - The opening day of the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, the third stop on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), saw incredible performances as the event ran through women’s Rounds 1, 2 and 3 in three-to-five foot (1 - 2 metre) conditions at Bells Beach.<br />
<br />
Reigning WSL Champion Tyler Wright (AUS) put on a clinic today at Bells Beach with a phenomenal performance in both Round 1 and Round 3. Wright posted an outstanding 17.00 two-wave combined score in Round 1 and continued to showcase her flair with an 18.47 in Round 3. Wright’s wins today earn her a place in the Quarterfinals and moves her one step closer to ringing the coveted Bell for the first time. Sage Erickson (USA) and local favorite Nikki Van Dijk (AUS) were not able to challenge Wright in Round 3 and will be sent to elimination Round 4 for one final opportunity to make the final series.<br />
A warm-up free surf session for the men took place at Winki Pop for most of the afternoon. <br />
