Rip Curl Pro presented by Ford runs March 27th - April 7th at Bells Beach. Adam Melling ( Ht 6 vs Slater and Jacob Wilcox ) and Owen Wright ( Ht 11 vs Ace and Micro ) will be surfing in the event which celebrates it's 52nd anniversary. Good luck fellas. Tyler Wright will be looking for another good result to cement her WCT No.1 position in the womens event.

CoastalWatch, official surf forecasters for the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, have provided the following update for the event: To sum up the forecast in one short sentence; it’s going to pump. Although the first few days of the waiting period are a little on the small side and a little inconsistent, the Easter long weekend is shaping up as nothing short of excellent. 

Update March 29th
No round 1 heat wins today so the fellas moved into round 2. Tyler finished 2nd with a 16.16 total and also moved into round 2.

Update March 30th
Tyler blew everyone away today . She smashed her round 2 and 3 heats, beat Steph Gilmore by 0.04 in the quarters and bested Courtney Conlogue in the semi final. That's 3 straight, yeah 3, WCT Finals for 2013. 
“That was my fourth surf of the day so I am exhausted. Courtney has been impressive all day and I knew it was going to be a battle on my hands. Fortunately I had a strong start because Courtney came back in a big way towards the end and had opportunity on her last wave if she didn’t fall. Great heat and let’s see what tomorrow brings.
Tomorrow’s my third straight Final this year, it’s my birthday and it’s Easter so yeah, it’s going to be a big day if we run. Look, Bells is an event I’ve been watching since I was a kid. It’s prestige is second to none and we have waves on tap. I’m just really excited for tomorrow.”

 Update March 22nd
Adam was ripping in a really tough round 2 heat and progressed to the final 24. Owen had a bit of a shocker and bowed out. In round 3 ( no loser ) Adam surfed with speed and power but finished 2nd by 0.13. He surfs next in round 4 Ht 1 vs JDub. Tyler waited until the last minute to get her best wave and easily progressed into the semis.

Update March 23rd
Adam was eliminated falling victim to the conditions and wave choice today . He finished 17th with 1300 points.

Update March 24th
Tyler Wright has finished 2nd in the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro WCT womens event. In her semi she notched up an 18.43 total before her opponent knew what hit her. Unfortunately right after her 2nd excellent wave Ty was smashed up the dry rock shelf and surfed the rest of the heat in pain. In the final Tyler was a little out of synch with the ocean and spent most the heat copping massive close out sets on the head. This 2nd huge result for the year has Ty sitting at No. 1 in the WCT rankings. Congratulations

 “It’s only the second event of the year and in no way am I looking at being number one at all! I’m up against World Champions, a three times world runner-up and the rest of the tour as well. I’m just being me more this year and I’m really happy and I think it’s showing in my surfing. I’ve done a lot of growing up over the past two years and I’m enjoying the tour. My brother Owen has been a great support to me, he was at this contest but went home. He called me this morning and we had a massive conversation and that helped me to the podium today.”

Update March 9th
Tyler Wright has claimed the 2013 Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by Land Rover over Sally Fitzgibbons in punchy two-to-three foot waves at Snapper Rocks. Sally held the lead for the majority of the final but Ty caught a wave in the dying moments and tore it apart for a 9.20 out of a possible 10, taking the heat lead and the win.
 “I don’t even know what to say right now. I wasn’t even thinking out there. I was singing to myself and when I came in, my sister said ‘I was singing right along with you’. That little wave came in and hugged the bank and I just left it all on the wave. To get the score and the win like that, it’s incredible.”
 “I’m not even thinking about the world title. I had a rough season last year and I took a good break over the off-season, got a motorbike and just relaxed. To come back and get a win in the first event, it feels great and I’m just going to enjoy it.”
Tyler is now the leader for the 2013 ASP Women’s World Title. Congratulations Tyler.

The KOTG Final ran just before the Roxy Final and Mikey Wright combo-ed the field for another emphatic victory. Well done grom

Update March 10th
Mello smashed Damo Hobgoblin in round 2 finishing with a 15.90 total and a lot of confidence. A lucky break for Adam in round 3 with JJFlo pulling out due to an ankle injury from the expression session. The walk through puts Mello into round 4 no loser heat vs Flores and Taj. Owen was ripping but the judges decided that his opponent surfed 0.01 points better on his 2 scoring waves and O was eliminated taking a 25th. Heavy.

Mello went down to Parko in a tight heat at Snapper and finished 9th. Adam held the lead 3 times but couldn't find the right wave to ditch his 4.83. This result equates to 4000 points and a great start to 2013. Well done mate.
