The thought slaps Lisa Andersen with the force of a Pipeline wipeout. Her daughter, Erica, is squealing about an imperiled Disney character on TV, but Andersen is facing her other demons, trying to punch through the nightmare notion that her daughter might some day make the same choice she did. "Yeah, I know what I did when I ran away," she says, softly, "but, hopefully, she's being brought up differently and won't have to turn against me like I did against them."

For opposing coaches, it was a familiar story. All Lisa Andersen had to do was show up to beat Layne Beachley. But a resumption of that once-fierce rivalry among surfing's greatest female champions was far overshadowed by the performances of today's brightest stars in treacherous surf at Puerto Escondido, Mexico. On a steamy Wednesday morning at Zicatela Beach, the United States, buoyed by the tube-riding expertise of Hawaii's Melanie Bartels, posted a 55-52 victory over a stacked "World" squad.

World champion Lisa Andersen again proved why she is at the top of her sport, winning the Op Pro women's surfing championship on Saturday at the Huntington Beach pier. Andersen, who finished second here last year to Frieda Zamba of Flagler Beach, Fla., rode each wave she caught in characteristic aggressive style. During the 30-minute final heat, the lead changed hands between Australia's Pauline Menczer, Andersen and upstart Patricia Rossi of Tahiti.

World champion Lisa Andersen again proved why she is in a league of her own, winning the women's title Saturday at the Op Pro Surfing Championships. Andersen, runner-up last year to Frieda Zamba of Flagler Beach, Fla., attacked each wave in characteristic aggressive style. During the 30-minute heat, the lead changed back and forth between Australia's Pauline Menczer, Andersen and upstart Patricia Rossi of Tahiti.

Lisa Andersen performed radical moves early and used sound strategy late in the 45-minute final on Saturday to win the U.S. Open of Surfing. In 3- to 5-foot surf, Andersen defeated former world champion Frieda Zamba, who won the Op Pro last weekend. Both events were held at the Huntington Beach Pier. Zamba, 29, took off on fewer waves in the beginning of the heat in an effort to pace herself. Andersen was less selective and surfed aggressively on the small waves she caught.

After a week of poor surfing and energy-zapping waves, Lisa Andersen was at the end of her rope Saturday. So when Andersen paddled out for her heat in the women's championship at the U.S. Open of Surfing, she was so tired that she just wanted to let the current take her on down the beach. Fortunately for Andersen, Hurricane Guillermo was weakening and she was able to shrug off her frustration to win the Open women's title.

It seemed a page out of Jack Kerouac's "On the Road." A restless but adventurous soul hits the road in pursuit of a dream. But unlike the legendary New York writer and poet's cross-country excursions, Lisa Andersen's decision to pack her bags and leave her Florida home at 16 was not inspired by the sound of jazz, poetry or adventure, but California surf and the hopes of becoming the best woman surfer in the world.

The first time Lisa Andersen surfed in a contest in Huntington Beach, event promoter Ian Cairns noticed her mother's signature bore a striking resemblance to her own on her entry form. He didn't press the point and Andersen--who had run away from home in Florida and come to Surf City to "become a world champion," according to the note she left her parents--ended up winning her first contest, a National Scholastic Surfing Assn. event.
