COOLANGATTA, Australia (Saturday, Mar. 3, 2007) – Round 3 of the Roxy Pro Gold Coast presented by Samsung will hit the water this morning at 8am in clean three to four foot (1 to 1.2 metre) waves at Snapper Rocks.
"Today we'll commence with the women for Round 3 of the Roxy Pro beginning at 8am," Contest Director Rod Brooks said. "Conditions are light and variable with good clean faces, almost glassy. Winds are expected to pick up later in the morning and we hope to get through the quarterfinals before running the Foster's Surf Showdown for the men - the international nation versus nation exhibition event - at 2pm."
Heats 1-8 will hit the water shortly. A bevy of dynamic match-ups await spectators including Heat 4 where reigning and seven-time ASP Women’s World Champion Layne Beachley (AUS) will look to avenge her Round 1 loss against 14-year-old wildcard Carissa Moore (HAW).
