Another lay day looms for surfers

9:34 am on 14 April 2010

Unfavourable conditions with an onshore wind could mean another day out of the water for top women surfers in the World Tour event in Taranaki.

Nineteen-year-old Paige Hareb, the only New Zealander on the tour, takes on Rebecca Woods of Australia in her next heat after a strong start yesterday.

And the 15-year-old New Zealand wildcard Sarah Mason will face the three time world champion Stephanie Gilmore of Australia again after reaching the third round via the repechage.
