Roxy Team Riders Sally Fitzgibbons & Sofia Mulanovich take a 1st & 2nd Today in Round 3 of the US Open

The third round of the women’s event at the US Open of Surfing was greeted with sunshine and 2-3 ft waves. The lumpy, bumpy conditions this afternoon were much better than Monday’s first rounds, making it easier for the girls to find those workable sections. 

Sally and Sofia both battled it out against Hawaii’s Melanie Bartels, who opened up the heat with the leading score. Sofia took over mid-heat after her huge snap and recover in the white wash, topping Mel’s high score.

Sally couldn’t seem to find the right wave, but her patience paid off after finding a couple lined up waves toward the end of the heat and throwing down multiple maneuvers. Sally’s total score was a 10.6, finishing in first place. Sofia closed the heat with a 9.97 and will be surfing in round four tomorrow.

Stay tuned this week for updates on Sally and Sofia!
