The lulls between sets are still excruciating at times, but the wave size is really starting to pick up. Lots of 4s and 5s out there for the surfers to really cut loose on. Stephanie Gilmore scored an 8.6 on a nice overhead wave. She secured first place with that wave alone. Jessi Miley-Dyer and Malia Manuel took first and second from heat 3, Stephanie Gilmore and Megan Abubo took first and second from heat 4. Heat 5 (sorry, no pics) was won by Paige Hareb with local favorite Sage Erickson grabbing second.
