LENNOX Head surfer Stephanie Single has advanced to the third round of the Great Lakes Pro at Boomerang Beach.

Single scored 14 (out of a possible 20) to finish ahead of Tweed Heads surfer Alyssa Lock and two other competitors in the second round heat.  

It eliminated Lock from the competition after the teenager won her opening heat.  

"Having decent waves makes everything so much more fun," Lock said.   

"There are no easy heats in this event at any stage."  

In other results from the second day, Lennox Head's Jack Murray was eliminated in the third round.  

The Great Lakes Pro is the last event in the new NSW Surf Series.  

The series was developed for Australian and international surfers to gain ranking points and prize money on the World Surf League Qualifying Series.  

Japanese surfer Nagisa Tashiro is among the international contingent competing at the event.  

"I got a few good waves and I'm so happy," Tashiro said.   

"I've come to Australia many times over the last few years and I love competing here."  

Far North Coast surfers Soli Bailey and Stu Kennedy automatically qualified through to the fourth round and will surf today.
