The first day of action kicked off at the Rip Curl Pro, with the girls hitting the water. Under sunny skies (see photos below of spectators swimming in bikinis and Bede Durbidge wearing a muscle tee – both very sexily I might add) and fun waves Carissa Moore scored a ten, defending champion Sally Fitzgibbons shredded and Alana Blanchard dusted world champ Steph Gilmore. With the forecast for Easter set for “Pumping” it looks like the Rip Curl Pro is set for a cracking week. Surf Europe will be there (well our under cover photogs will) covering all the action. Here’s a few pics from day 1.
