Carissa Moore: power and finesse

Carissa Moore claimed the 2014 Drug Aware Margaret River Women's Pro.

The final saw a rematch of 2013 and a seesaw battle at Main Break. It was Tyler Wright who struck first, logging a mid-range score but the Hawaiian answered back, belting a series of forehand turns for a 7.50, overtaking Wright for the lead.

Following a lull, Wright delivered an explosive two-turn combination, netting an 8.00 to regain the lead at the halfway mark in the heat.

Moore took the lead once again following an additional exchange, netting a 6.87 to Wright's 6.10 and immediately extended her lead with the highest score of the heat, an 8.23 for a powerful two-turn combination, securing her second consecutive Drug Aware Margaret River Pro victory.

"Tyler Wright looked awesome today and she's a tough competitor. "I think any time any of us are in a final we really want to win it and take it home. I was really excited and told myself 'come on, it's time'," says Moore.

"It's a very challenging wave here at Margaret River and I'm constantly learning so I'm thankful to be able to win here again. I love this place and I love Western Australia. It feels good to be up there at the top of the rankings with Stephanie and I can't wait to see how the rest of the events unfold."
