DEE WHY, Sydney NSW/AUS (Saturday, April 21, 2012) ? The Finals are on now live at the 2012 Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic. The event will be crowning a 2012 champion at Dee Why beach today. The surf is clean, with two-to-three foot (1.5 meter) waves on offer for the Top 17 female surfers in the world to battle for the richest prize purse on the ASP Women?s World Championship Tour.
Stop No. 4 of 7 on the 2012 ASP Women?s World Championship Tour, the Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic is run by seven-time ASP Women?s World Champion Layne Beachley, and is in its seventh year.
“There are a lot of sevens in my life at the moment,” Beachley said. “I’m so proud I’ve been able to run this event for seven years. I’m really appreciative of the Commonwealth Bank’s support and am thrilled with the level of women’s surfing. It’s Finals day today. We’ve had a decrease in swell, but the girls are incredible at what they do and I’m sure they’ll be able to put on a great show today. I’ll be getting in the water later in the day for the celebrity challenge, and maybe even the Nikon Expression Session.”
