2012 Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic

DEE WHY, Sydney NSW/AUS (Friday, April 20, 2012) Laura Enever (AUS).  The 2012 Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic is back on at Sydney’s Dee Why beach today starting at 8am. The stormy conditions that we’ve seen over the past few days are starting to clean up, with clean six foot (2 meter) surf on the beach and the point.. .Stop No. 4 of 7 on the 2012 ASP Womens World Championship Tour, the Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic run by seven-time ASP Womens World Champion Layne Beachley is one of the most exciting stops on tour, with the world’s best female surfers competing in Australia’s biggest city.. .Layne Beachley, seven-time ASP Womens World Champion and Commonwealth Bank Beachley Classic Contest Director made the call to run the competition for the second day in a row with great conditions on offer.. .The direction of the swell has gone a little more east, Beachley said. “That’s favourable for Dee Why point and the beach break. We’ve got an increase in swell of a couple of feet, I’d say it’s six-to-seven feet. There’s a lot of water moving which is really challenging for the girls and they’ll have to decide where they surf, either the beach or the point. We’re powering through and Round 2 and 3, with Round 4 on hold and the possibility of running the Nikon Expression Session.”.Round four was completed with the biggest upset of the contest, the defeat of the defending champion Carissa Moore (HAW) by Courtney Conlogue (USA).
