“After finishing 13th in previous stop in Margaret River I went home and worked really hard and I’m so pleased that the hard work paid off. Congratulations to Taj , I’ve never been so nervous for nine minutes of my life, he surfed amazingly. We got to surf everywhere at this event which was awesome, we got to surf the Bowl, Rincon and to finish at Winkipop. It’s always been my dream to surf a Heat at Winkipop. This is such a special event for me and I feel comfortable here. With the calibre of surfers on Tour at the moment there’s never an easy Heat and it keeps it so exciting,” said Mick Fanning

Carissa Moore of Hawai, two-time ASP Women’s World Champion, claimed her second consecutive Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach event title with a sensational performance. Moore dispatched Sally Fitzgibbons in the Semifinals and went on to take out Tyler Wright  in a rematch of the 2013 Final. Both competitors went blow-for-blow in the pumping conditions. It was a heroic fight from the young Australian, but it was Moore’s day with the reigning event winner showing off incredible commitment on every turn and carve.

"I'm speechless right now. That was an amazing Final! We were having such a blast, the waves were so fun and it felt like we were having a fun free surf. I know she's such an amazing surfer and will be in ASP World Title contention at the end of the year, so I knew I had to be at my best. It's been a long Australian leg with three events in a row and it couldn't have been much better for me, two wins and a quarterfinal and to finish by winning at Bells is so unique and special," Carissa Moore said.
