Steph Gilmore surfing was on point in the Roxy Pro Quarterfinals heat but ran out of time to put the score together against long time rival Carissa Moore

“Surfing against Carissa you have to get two nines to win basically and I knew that,” Gilmore said.

“I had one semi-decent score but I never really felt comfortable. It’s really disappointing to get that score and feel good about it and to paddle back out and just see Carissa stroke into the dreamiest wave. I knew it was over, she doesn’t falter under pressure like that.”

Gilmore recorded 6.50 and 7.67 for a total of 14.17 while Moore’s decisive wave gave her a total of 16.13.
