Update Feb 26th
Owen had a great start to the event with a solid heat win. He opened up with a 7.00 and backed it up with a 5.83 in onshore 3' Snapper peelers. Go to round 3 mate.

Mello worked hard to put together a round 1 win in the bumpy onshore conditions. With scores of 6.73 and 4.67 he edged KP out by 0.27 to book a berth in round 3. Good on ya mate.

Meanwhile in the Roxy Pro Tyler Wright dusted Steph yet again with a 17.96 heat total ( 8.93 and 9.03 )to move straight into round 3.

Update Mar 7th
Both Owen and Adam had a bad day at the office today. Neither of the fellas could find the longer waves to link up to the inside bank and were eliminated from the event to finish in equal 13th with 1750 points in the bank. Better luck in the upcoming comps fellas. In the Roxy Pro Tyler delivered an incredible display showing eveyone the future of womens surfing to smash Pauline Ado and cruise into the quarter finals where she will meet Silvana Lima


Update Mar 8th
An incredible day of womens pro surfing today @ the Roxy Pro Gold Coast. Many are calling it the best display from the girls ever. Tyler had a huge win in the quarters that included her new signature move - the layback carve. She went on to fight for another win in the semis. In the final against Carissa Moore she was fighting from the start after the Hawaiian opened up with a 9.17. Tyler started slow but increased her scores with every wave slowly building towards a total that would be enough for the win. Tyler took a bomb from behind the rock at Snapper and pulled into a sick barrel only to be faded by Carissa , who had priority. Tyler still emerged from the pit but had to concede the wave. If she had been able to continue that wave a perfect 10 would have been inevitable. Well done Tyler in your first event, 2nd is pretty bloody good mate. Check the videos below
