Round 3 Roxy Pro presented by LG On at Snapper Rocks; Champ Could be Crowned Today

COOLANGATTA, Australia (Saturday, Mar. 1, 2008) – Round 3 of the Roxy Pro presented by LG will hit the water in clean three-foot (1 metre) waves at Snapper Rocks this morning at 7:30am, and could potentially run from Round 3 through the Finals, crowning a 2008 Roxy Pro Champion by day’s end.

The opening event of the 2008 ASP Women’s World Tour, the Roxy Pro pres. By LG, is the all-important momentum builder for the season, and today’s winner will enjoy the ASP rating’s lead until the next event

“The official call is that we’re going to get Round 3 of the Roxy Pro underway at 7:30am,” Rod Brooks, Event Director, said. “Depending on the conditions, the girls may opt to go on hold for an hour, but if it’s looking good, they’ll start at 7:30am. Following the completion of Round 3, we’ll reassess and determine whether to finish the girls or run Round 3 of the men. The swell is projected to increase over the coming days and we’ll be running our surfers in the best conditions possible.”

With 16 of the original 18 surfers still remaining in the draw, the Roxy Pro pres. by LG will see some dynamic match-ups in Round 3 including former seven-time ASP Women’s World Champion Layne Beachley (AUS) and Australian veteran Serena Brooke (AUS), Hawaiian powerhouses Megan Abubo (HAW) and Melanie Bartels (HAW), Rebecca Woods (AUS) and Rosanne Hodge (ZAF), among others.

Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), reigning ASP Women’s World Champion, will face off against Roxy Trials Winner and last season’s event runner-up Carissa Moore (AUS), and Samantha Cornish (AUS) and 2008 rookie Nicola Atherton (AUS) will start things off with the opening heat.
