Tyler Wright will look to build momentum this weekend at the Rip Curl Pro at Bell's Beach wearing the world number 1 yellow vest on her back.
But, she’ll face a tough battle to beat three superstars.
Hawaiian Carissa Moore is aiming for a fourth straight Bells victory, six-time world champion Stephanie Gilmore has won three times at Bells, while Sally Fitzgibbons is a two time winner and will be looking to rectify her worst result ever at the season opener, the Roxy Pro.
“I’m focused this year,” Wright said. “2016 is off to a good start and I aim to keep it rolling at Bells.
“I just see this as an opportunity to get on with what I want to do this year, win a world title,” Wright told the Daily Telegraph.
Big waves are expected over the Easter long weekend; the event could start as early as today.

“My worse year since 2006 was really frustrating but you can’t let one season define your career or how you feel,” Kirk told the Courier-Mail.
