Roxy Open 2010
6 Star Prime ISC Men's event
Keramas Beach, Gianyar Bali
1 - 6 November 2010
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 8 November, 2010 : - - Kuta-Bali -- At the Quiksilver/Roxy Open 2010 at Keramas Beach in Gianyar-Bali yesterday, Diah Rahayu Dewi of Seminyak claimed her first Coca-Cola ISC Womens Division win by staging a come-from-behind charge during the closing minutes of the 20 minute final to best 2009 ISC Womens Champion Yasnyiar Gea of Nias by a single point, 11.50 to 10.50.
Diah Dewi collected a cool Rp 2.5 million and jumped up to second spot in the ISC Womens Division rankings with her win.
I cant believe I won, she said. Ive had other podium finishes but never actually won an event. Im so lucky I got a couple of good set waves and they allowed me to do some more aggressive turns. I thought maybe I would finish second, because is always hard when youre in a final with Bonne (Yasnyiar Gea). She surfs so well and usually wins, so Im really happy to win this time, and Ill remember it for a long time.
12 of Indonesias top female surfers gathered on the hot black sands of Keramas Beach on Tuesday to have fun and compete in the Roxy Open on a wave that they normally dont get to surf very much, especially with just other women in the water.
Three heats and two semi-finals later, there were just 4 women left to battle it out for the Rp 5 million in prize money and valuable ISC championship points.
It was a closely contested final with Yasnyiar Gea jumping into the lead early with a 6 point wave but not finding more than a 4.5 as second scoring wave, which allowed Diah Dewi to eventually overtake her and drop her into second place.
Gemala posted the highest scoring wave of 7 points, but couldnt do any better than a 3.15 before time ran out, relegating her to 3rd place. Jasmine couldnt seem to find a good scoring opportunity; her best wave was a 3.65, so ended up in fourth place.
And while Yasnyiar Gea may not have won the event, her second place finish did cement her number one position in Womens Division, so in addition to prize money and points she was presented with the championship trophy and title of 2010 Coca-Cola Womens Division Champion for the second year running.
