Silvana Lima (BRA), who returned to the Tour this year after injury, aggressively attacked the lip for a 9.33. The score gave her the highest heat-total of Round 1 (an 18.16) and proved that she was back in a big way.
Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS) turned a last-ditch effort into a 9.23 -- the first nine-pointer of 2015 from the CT women. The high score also forced a final lead change in her heat and earned her a direct advance into Round 3 of the Roxy Pro Gold Coast.
Mick Fanning (AUS) was in a combination situation at the end of his Round 1 heat. But that didn't stop him from going all-out on his last wave. The three-time World Champion pulled out his classic power-surfing moves for the day's highest single-wave score, a 9.73.
