Well done Chels!
Former ASP Women’s World Champion (2005) Chelsea Hedges (AUS), claims second, in punchy two-to-three foot (1 metre) surf at Belgas, in Portugal at the Rip Curl Women’s Pro Search.
For Hedges, today’s return to form marks the first time the inspiring goofy-footer has seen a Finals’ berth since 2007, and moves her from 8th to 6th on the 2009 ASP Women’s World Tour ratings. Her dominance in the earlier rounds of the Rip Curl Women’s Pro Search cannot be overlooked as she consistently dominated the playful pits of Belgas, even eliminating reigning two-time ASP Women’s World Champion and current ASP Women’s World No. 1, Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 21, in the Quarterfinals.
