Hawaiian surfer Carissa Moore has beaten Lennox Head’s favourite daughter Tyler Wright to win the Maui Pro at Honalua Bay in Hawaii this morning.
The win means that Tweed Heads’ Stephanie Gilmore, who was eliminated in the quarterfinals, will pick up her sixth ASP World Championship title.
Despite her earlier elimination , Gilmore had enough of a points lead to clinch the title.
North coast surfing fans were on edge this morning when news emerged that if Wright won the final the pair would be forced into a head-to-head surf-off for the title.
The Target Maui Pro, the final stop on the 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP Women’s World Championship Tour was completed in 2-3 meter waves
