  • World Surf League: Roxy Pro Gold Coast, Round 2, 3, Quarterfinals, Lakey Peterson Scores First 9 of the Year
  • Women's Championship Roxy Pro Gold Coast ran Round 2, 3 and Quarterfinals in clean waves but small size, four-to five foot (1 - 1.5 metre) on March 12.
    In Heat 4 of Round 2, Lakey Peterson (USA) earned 9.00 points, it marks first 9 of the year. She was strong on a day and defeated the 3-time world champ Carissa Moore (HAW) and Macy Callaghan (AUS) in Round 3, as well as defeated reigning world champ Tyler Wright (AUS) in Quarterfinal.
    "It's crazy -- it's only two days into the season and I'm into the Semis," she said afterward. "I couldn't hold back. There was nothing I could do to change [Wright's] surfing, so I just focused on mine and it worked out in the end."
    Rookie Caroline Marks (USA) took down the 6-time world champ Stephanie Gilmore (AUS) in Round 3. But she was defeated by Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS) in Quarterfinal. Fitzgibbons showcased aerial and earned 8.17, 8.40 with a total of 16.57.
    Malia Manuel (HAW) defeated Carissa Moore (HAW) in Heat 2 of Quarterfinals, "I've met Carissa in the Quarters a couple of times here in the past and she's beaten me every single time," Manuel said. "This will be my first Semi at Snapper and it's a great start to the year for me."
    Defending champ of this event, Stephanie Gilmore was defeated by Keely Andrew (AUS) in Quarterfinal, and her back-to-back win walked away from her hands.
    "I made a few mistakes out there, I fell on a couple of waves," Keely Andrew said. "But fortunately, there weren't many waves after that, so it worked out in my favor. I want to do better in each event than I did last year, and I've already done that here. I'm in it to win it."
