Saturday, 19th April
The waiting period for the Ripcurl Pro Bells Beach started on Wednesday, with round 1 of the womens division being completed! Unfortunately NZ's Paige Hareb was religated into round 2, after placing 3rd in her heat. With a great swell forecast for the weekend competition is unlikely to resume until Saturday.

Wet again for much of the country today, the winds have abated slightly for spots further North.
Very solid out West today with 6 foot+ of NW angled swell. Its raw first thing but winds will freshen from the NE as the day progresses so conditions should improve as the day goes on.
The NE wind swell peaked last night for spots East Cape North and we have 2-3 foot+ left overs. Light winds first thing will give way to a NE wind.
A few waves for spots East Cape South this morning but NE winds are making for messy conditions.
There will be plenty of options for waves this weekend, so check out the reports and cams and plan your next roady!
