Johanne Defay has claimed the Fiji Women's Pro 2016, at Cloudbreak.
The French surfer secured the second Championship Tour (CT) event win of her career after defeating Carissa Moore in a pumping six-to-eight foot final.
"I've never beat Carissa (Moore) before. She is such an amazing surfer, and she took 9-point rides in every heat. It is crazy, and I am so happy. I want to thank my family because they have been up all night watching," expressed Defay.
Pope Francis is officially a surfer. Two surf activists have offered a surfboard to the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, in an event held in the Vatican Synod Hall.
Sean Brody and Daniel Hopkins, global surf travelers and founders of the Kwepunha Surf Retreat, were invited to speak at the end of the World Congress of Pontifical Foundation Scholas Occurrentes Pontifical.
Pope Francis was the main invitee, so Brody and Hopkins decided to gift him with a brand new surfboard. The white and light-blue plank has the Scholas Occurrentes logo.
