In Round Three at the Roxy Pro France Tatiana Weston-Webb went to work, hacking her way to a win in Heat 1. The Kauaian surfed nine waves in just 30 minutes, effectively lapping French surfer Johanne Defay and Hawaiian Alessa Quizon.
Tati, who was last year's World Surf League Rookie of the Year, has quickly become known both for her competitive drive and her vicious backhand attack. Saturday, though, it was the goofy's forehand that helped her take the win, when she worked her way down a long left for an 8.00.
While Tatiana's win sends her straight to the Quarterfinals in France, Johanne and Alessa will get another shot in Round Four.
