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.
