Hawaiian Carissa Moore Wins The Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach 2013 - Watch The Video


April 1, 2013 – Carissa Moore (HAW), 20, has claimed the 2013 Rip Curl Women's Pro Bells Beach presented by Ford over Tyler Wright (AUS), 19, in clean three-to-five foot waves in front of a capacity crowd at Bells Beach. Today's win vaults the young Hawaiian back into the lead on the ASP Women's World Championship Tour (WCT) ratings for the first time in over a year.

"To win Bells is a dream," Moore said. "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."

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 in a final exchange in the dying moments.

Today's win marks Moore's second in a row this season, previously collecting a victory in Western Australia last week, and the Hawaiian now sits in the driver's seat in this season's race for the 2013 ASP Women's World Title.

Wright, a standout on last Saturday's marathon day of competition, was unable to capitalize during her third, consecutive Finals' berth of the season and drops from ASP WCT No. 1 to ASP WCT No. 2 heading into the fourth event of the season.

"It's disappointing for sure," Wright said. "I felt like I was surfing well all week and I really wanted to ring the bell. The waves just didn't deliver for us though. Congrats to Carissa (Moore) though. She was ripping and I'll try to go one better at New Zealand."


1 – Carissa Moore (HAW) 15.40
2 – Tyler Wright (AUS) 8.00
