Bethany Hamilton has been awarded the wildcard to the Swatch Women's Pro at Lowers for the second time in a row. Bethany will start off in an all Rip Curl heat, surfing against Nikki Van Dijk and Tyler Wright.
Previously this year Bethany caused some big upsets when she made it to the semifinals at the Fiji Women's Pro.
"Lower Trestles is a really special place - the perfect platform to showcase women's surfing. Bethany is an extremely talented surfer and we are very excited to have her back at the Swatch Women's Pro. After her incredible performance in Fiji, which is the best we've seen from a wildcard in some time, she has earned another opportunity to compete alongside the world's best." - Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Women's Commissioner.
The Swatch Women's Pro will run September 7th - 18th at Lowers.
