BELLS BEACH, Australia (Friday, Apr. 6, 2007) – The Rip Curl Women's Pro will crown a champion today. Nine ASP Women's World Tour surfers are still in contention – one will 'ring the bell' after they contest the three foot (one metre) waves on offer at Bells Beach this morning.

The remaining heat of Round 3, featuring Megan Abubo (HAW) and Amee Donohoe (AUS) will hit the water at 7:30am. The heat was postponed two days ago so that Donohoe could undergo precautionary medical testing – she was given the all-clear.

The Quarterfinals of the Rip Curl Women's Pro will hit the water at around 8am and the event Final will run around midday.

The Foster's ASP World Tour surfers are on standby for a possible Rip Curl Pro Round 2 start this morning. Conditions will be assessed throughout the morning and a decision will be made after the women's event is wrapped.
