Top New Zealand surfer Paige Hareb completed her season-opening contest on the full world tour with a ninth-place finish on Queensland's Gold Coast today.

Hareb bowed out in the elimination fourth round at the Roxy Pro, losing a low-scoring heat to Hawaiian Malia Manuel.

Manuel scored 10.83 (out of 20) for her two best waves, living dangerously on a promising opening ride of 7.83 at the Snapper Rocks break.

Hareb could only find two mid-range scores to total 8.60.

Hareb won US$9500 and claimed 3300 valuable ranking points, an improvement on her opening effort at this event last year when she finished 13th.

Manuel, improved her career record against Hareb to 7-3 and moved through to the quarterfinals for a showdown with fellow Hawaiian and current world champion Carrisa Moore.

Earlier in the day Hareb had finished behind five-time world champion Steph Gilmore (Australia) and American Courtney Conlogue in a third round tussle.

Hareb's focus shifts to the next Dream Tour contest in Perth starting on April 2.
