All eyes on Sally in Surfest Women's Classic

A camera mounted on a remote-controlled helicopter followed Gerroa surfer Sally Fitzgibbons as she competed in the Surfest Women’s Classic at Newcastle’s Merewether Beach yesterday. 

Fitzgibbons, last year’s world number two, made her way into the quarter-finals where she will face young Hawaiian surfer Alessa Quizon.

Fitzgibbons finished second to American Lakey Peterson, after reigning world champion Steph Gilmore bowed out in a difficult one-metre swell.
