It was a rough start to Round 1, Heat 3 at Day 1 of the WSL Swatch Women’s Pro today, with a bit of a lull for the first ten minutes of the heat. Making the three competitors a little antsy down at Lower Trestles in San Clemente, CA. Bethany held the lead after a few solid scores, but then lost it when Nikki Van Dijk turned out a good scoring ride near the end of the heat. Her final wave was so close but not quite enough to move her back to the lead.
She will move on to Round 2 where she has another matchup against current World #1 Tyler Wright.
The Swatch Women’s Pro will stream live on the WSL website and app September 7th-18th and runs in conjunction with the Hurley Pro at Trestles.
