Kaua‘i’s two women’s surfers on the pro tour both moved in different directions, yesterday in the Roxy Pro contest in Australia.
Ballard moved on to round four with a win over Australia’s Claire Bevilacqua, 12.20 to 10.67.
However, Kennelly went down thanks to Australia’s Samantha Cornish, 12.77 to 11.83.
But Kennelly didn’t go home empty handed, as she swooped up the Samsung Expression Session best maneuver, which handed her the $1,500 prize.
Another call on the competition status will be made today.
