Yesterday the women had their way with the Bells Bowl and boy they put on a show. Heated exchanges, ferocious paddle-battles and most importantly, some mind-blowing surfing. In the end it was Courtney Conlogue who rung the bell for the second consecutive year, a doubly reinforced trophy, after last year she shook the bell clean off! Steph Gilmore retains the yellow Jeep Leaders Jersey after a runner-up finish, but as the Oz leg comes to an end you get the feeling she’s got a lot of work to do in order to keep the other girls at bay. Could be one of the most exciting title races in years.
