• 4th place for Dimity in Panama

Stoyle proved to the strongest surfer of the round, posting a combined score of 13.46 (7.10+6.36) to beat Miley-Dyer, leaving Paige Hareb (NZL) in third.

'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 Sofía 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.
