Update: 11:16AM New Zealander Paige Hareb is one win away from reaching the quarter-finals of the women's surfing world tour event in Fiji.

Hareb faces a fourth-round repechage against Malia Manuel of Hawaii after placing third in her third-round heat at the Fiji Pro off Tavarua Island.

Despite scoring the fifth-best score of the 12 surfers contesting the third round, Hareb was pipped by Australians Laura Enever and Sally Fitzgibbons.

Enever compiled 18.84 points from her two best-scoring waves while Fitzgibbons scored 15.07 and Hareb 14.93.

New Zealand teenager Ella Williams received a wildcard to compete at the Fiji Pro but was eliminated in the second round.
