Heather Clark

The first round of the Women’s division was dominated by non other than former ASP Women’s World Tour competitor Heather Clark (Port Shepstone), who slammed a near perfect 9.33 (out of ten) ride onto the score board, with her powerful backhand attack.

 

Clark, who has retired from international competition but continues to compete on the local Pro Surf Tour, looked supremely comfortable in the disgruntled ocean and found another good back up ride to advance into the quarterfinals ahead of Tammy Roberts (Strand, Cape Town).

 

Defending Pro Women’s Champion Stacey Guy (Melkbosstrand) seemed determined to hold onto her Lizzard Nandos Surf Pro title, posting an excellent 8.50 (out of ten) to win her first heat over junior surfer Kirsty Delport (Durban).

 

ASP World Qualifying Series rookie Nikita Robb (East London), who is currently rated tenth in the world, was another goofy footer (right foot forward) to do some damage at the New Pier, posting the second of the day’s eight point rides advancing into the quarterfinals ahead of Adele Nortje (Mossel Bay).

 

Other girls to advance included reigning ASP Africa Champion Sarah Maritz (Warner Beach), Caylin De Reuck (Melkboss), Tara Hossack (Cape Town), Sarah Baum (Warner Beach), National junior team member Tarryn Chudleigh (Cape Town), Bronwyn Coote (Durban), Chantelle Rautenbach (Cape Town), Tammy Lee Smith (Balitto), Tasha Mentasti (Durban North) and Penny Robarts (Strand).

 

The Lizzard Nandos Surf Pro is a One Star World Qualifying Series event for Pro Men and includes a Grade 1 International Pro Junior Men and 2A Surfing South Africa Women’s divisions a offering a total of R100 000 in prize money.

 

The event is co sponsored by Nestle Pure Life Water, Bokomo, Bavaria, Durban Africa and Clayton Surfboards.
