'I'm really close to the final in my first ISA event. It would be awesome to win a medal,' said the Australian. 'This contest is very different from the others I do. This contest is singular, in that you are surfing on your own but you are also really thinking about your team, and you want to do well for your country.'
Dimity Stoyle (AUS), the 2003 ISA World Junior Surfing Champion, Jessi Miley-Dyer (AUS), 2004 ISA and ASP World Champion SofÃa Mulanovich (PER) and 2011 ISA World Junior Champion Canelle Bulard (FRA) made it through to Round 4 to compete for a place on the podium.
