“I had a bit of a tricky start yesterday, I was just kind of feeling out of rhythm, it was one of those off days. I was like I’m just going to go surf and have a bunch of fun and I think it just got me all psyched and happy for the event, it just felt really good.”

STORY: Courtney Conlogue beat her fellow American Carissa Moore at Margaret River in Australia on Wednesday (April 22) to win the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro.

Californian Conlogue scored two excellent eight point plus rides to defeat Hawaii’s Carissa Moore in some of the best surf ever for a World Surf League Women’s Championship Tour event.

The result moves her to second place on the WSL rankings going into the fourth event of the year, the Oi Rio Pro.

Conlogue drew first blood in the final for a modest score, a 5.33, and an early lead. An uncharacteristic priority mistake from Moore with twenty minutes remaining left Conlogue with her pick of the waves but Moore came back to take an inside wave, unload two big turns to earn an excellent 8.50.

Conlogue answered back with a big layback hack to reclaim the lead and then took a set wave for an excellent 8.43. The Hawaiian was left without priority needing a 6.60 and found only a 4.63 at the six-minute mark. Conlogue had four minutes remaining to control the line-up and hold off the two-time World Champion and found a big righthander, delivering three solid terms to improve her scoreline with an 8.50, and took the win.

The second-place finish today from Moore in her third final of 2015 sees her retain the Jeep leader jersey and number one spot in the rankings.

Drug Aware Margaret River Pro Women’s Final Results:

1: Courtney Conlogue (USA) 16.93

2: Carissa Moore (HAW) 13.13
