Tuesday, 19 July 2011
There were just enough waves rolling in at Jeffreys Bay for contest organisers to call a late start to round 2, but only half the heats could be completed.

Greatness never comes easy, it takes time, the time to learn, have fun and commit. Carissa Moore has clearly made the most of her time, becoming the youngest World Champion surfing has ever seen.JUST DO IT.
