The Drug Aware Margaret River Pro final would see a rematch from 2013, with reigning two-time ASP Women’s World Champion Carissa Moore tangling in a seesaw battle against Tyler Wright at Main Break.
Wright would strike first in the final, logging a midrange score. The Hawaiian would answer back, belting a series of forehand turns for a 7.50, overtaking Wright for the lead.
Following a lull, Wright would deliver an explosive two-turn combination, netting an 8.00 to regain the lead at the halfway mark in the heat.
Moore would take the lead once again following an additional exchange, netting a 6.87 to Wright’s 6.10 and immediately extend her lead with the highest score of the heat of an 8.23 for a powerful two-turn combination, securing her second consecutive Drug Aware Margaret River Pro victory.
