Small conditions equalised the playing field for the All Girls Surfriders Annual Hardcore Winter Classic July prize round, giving everyone a chance to reach the finals.
The day started with off-shore winds and 0.3–0.6 metre clean waves.
Surfers made the most of wave pulses, showcasing some clever manoeuvres, given the weak push of waves.
We had to extend heats to 20 minutes because of disappearing swell, breaking waves and on-shore winds as the day progressed.
