Burleigh Heads/Australia: Friday February 7 2013: Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS) called on her recent progressive training to post the highest combined two-wave total of the Breaka Burleigh Pro to date to impressively win her Round Of 12 heat and advance to tomorrow’s quarter finals.
“It’s a really nice way to start the morning; I had a few waves in a warm up session early so I was pretty confident that we would get plenty of opportunity for high scoring waves,” said Fitzgibbons.
After posting a 9.0 (out of a possible 10), Fitzgibbons then followed with a near-perfect combination of scores – a 9.57 and 9.27.
“In the off season I did try to think of ways to work on progressive manoeuvres, and we did play around in a wave pool and a bunch of different locations that would provide the suitable sections. I think it’s all come together nicely and it’s definitely a work-in-progress, but right now I feel on edge and ready for the season ahead,” Fitzgibbons continued.
The event resumes at 8:00am tomorrow morning and runs through to approximately 4pm with the finals set for Saturday (Women’s) and Sunday (Men’s).http://breakaburleighsurfpro.com.au
