If anyone had any doubts to how serious and competitive women's professional surfing is, you need not look any further than the Margaret River Pro held March 16-24th in Western Australia. In one wave Sally Fitzgibbons and Laura Enever, showed that female surfers are not just cute, bikini wearing sideshow inferior to there male counterparts. When Fitzgibbons and Enever took off on the same wave (Fitzgibbons going right Enever going left) during their Round Three Heat, Fitzgibbons grabbed Enever by the chest and back throwing Enever from her board in a fashion typically seen in The WWE, not an ASP event.
Tyler Wright (AUS), 19, has defeated Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS), 22, in a high-scoring final of 17.80 to 15.67 to win the Colgate Plax Girls Rio Pro in peaky two-to-three foot waves, simultaneously taking the frontrunner position on the 2013 ASP Women’s World Championship Tour (WCT).
Reigning five-time ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 25, has withdrawn from the upcoming Colgate Plax Girls Rio Pro.
