Canggu: Day Two - Ladies Highlights and photos
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 9 October, 2012 : - - The ladies hit the water for their opening round on Day 2 of the OWPJ. Three-foot right-handers peeled down the reef at Echo Beach, and the women began the battle to become the first ASP Women’s World Junior Champion crowned in Indonesia.
Bianca Buitendag amassed the day’s highest two-wave heat-total of 18.10. Buitendag arrived in Bali in red-hot form, fresh off a win at the last ASP 6-Star event of the season to a coveted spot in the elite ASP Women’s World Championship Tour for 2013.
Reigning ASP Women’s World Junior Champion, Leila Hurst started her title defense campaign with a Round 1 win. Her heat was a close battle between Hurst, Joanne Defay and Mahina Maeda, with all three surfers holding the lead at different stages.
Philippa Anderson punctuated her impressive Round 1 victory over Ellie-Jean Coffey and Juliana Meneghel with a near perfect 9.50, for a series of fast, yet powerful turns. Nikki Van Dijk was one of the day’s top performers. She didn’t miss a beat as she snapped, carved and floated her way to the second highest two-wave heat-total of the day.
Alessa Quizon closed out the day’s competition laying down powerful backhand carves to win the heat and advance directly into Round 3 alongside Quincy Davis. Surfers who finished third will battle it out in the elimination Round 2.
The Oakley World Pro Junior Championships runs from October 6 – 17.
