ITACARÉ, Brazil (Wednesday, August 23, 2006) –Round one of the inaugural Billabong Pro Girls Brazil hit the water at 1pm local time. Officials are hoping to complete all six heats of round one today.

If conditions, which are currently only two to three foot (half to one metre) but favorably wind affected, hold, it is possible that round two will run as well.

Round two features the third place surfers from the first six heats and takes two heats and approximately one hour to complete. The girls who finish third in the three-woman round two heats are eliminated.

Heat three of round one is today’s most critical match-up. Current world number one Melanie Redman-Carr (AUS) will meet wildcard Maria Tita Tavares (BRA) and Heather Clark (ZAF) in that heat. Redman-Carr and Tavares’ performances will be of significant importance.

Tavares is a former elite-tour surfer who is known for her ability to make magic in small waves, something she illustrated when she won last week’s five-star World Qualifying Series (WQS) event held at Praia da Tiririca, Itacaré, as well.

Redman-Carr has won every event on the 2006 ASP Women’s World Tour thus far and currently poised to make a serious run at her first World Title.

HEAT 1: Megan Abubo (HAW), Keala Kennelly (HAW), Jessi Miley Dyer (AUS)
HEAT 2: Sofia Mulanovich (PER), Samantha Cornish (AUS), Julia Christian (USA)
HEAT 3: Melanie Redman-Carr (AUS), Heather Clark (ZAF), Maria Tita Tavares (BRA)
HEAT 4: Chelsea Georgeson (AUS), Trudy Todd (AUS), Serena Brooke (AUS)
HEAT 5: Layne Beachley (AUS), Claire Bevilacqua (AUS), Jacqueline Silva (BRA)
HEAT 6: Rochelle Ballard (HAW), Rebecca Woods (AUS), Silvana Lima (BRA)
