Carissa Moore: power and style

Carissa Moore has conquered the the 2013 Rip Curl Women's Pro Bells Beach, after defeating Tyler Wright, in clean three-to-five foot (1 – 1.5 metre) waves.

The Hawaiian surfer girl is back in the lead of the ASP Women's World Championship Tour (WCT) ratings, for the first time in over a year.

"To win Bells is a dream. As a little kid, you always looked forward to watching it and reading about it. The history and the prestige and the people who have won it are really legendary. To be a part of it now is really special", revealed Carissa Moore.

After opening the heat with a 9.57 on her first wave, Moore survived a psychologically-draining 25-minute lull in action before she and Wright battled it out ina a final exchange in the dying moments.

"It wasn't an easy heat". I was fortunate to get a good score to start, but Tyler is really powerful and a really fierce competitor. If she got the waves, it was going to be a challenge. We had a really long lull during the heat and then a little flurry at the end", Moore added.
