Bells Beach Highlights

by DHD Surf

Starting off the first day of competing with a full day of ripping for the WSL’s Woman CT heats has left Steph Gilmore ready to battle out through round 4. With Gilmore still holding the Jeep Leader’s yellow jersey, her long drawn-out lines and deep rail work will make her a force to be reckoned with at the Bells Bowl.

While the waves have been pumping the rest of the team have made the most of the time to dial in their boards and prepare for their campaign.

Amongst Fanning‘s, quiver is the ‘Tour Tail’ which gains more drive and hold for bigger without needing to go to a ‘Pin Tail’. The tail is similar to the DNA model, but more defined with a slight ‘hip’ and a straighter square bottom edge finishing it off.
