HUNTINGTON BEACH, California - World surfing title contender Sally Fitzgibbons and three other Australians have cruised through to the third round of the women's tour event in California.

Fitzgibbons, Tyler Wright, Stephanie Gilmore and Dimity Stoyle made the most of wave-starved conditions at Huntington Beach to win their opening battles yesterday, alongside defending champion Carissa Moore and Lakey Peterson.

Five-time world champion Gilmore didn't stumble in her heat, posting the day's highest two-wave total of 15.77.

"My strategy was to go out there and stay active, but you also have to have an open mind and look at waves that might not be an option when you're free surfing," Gilmore said.
