Tatiana Weston-Webb und Filipe Toledo gewinnen in Margaret River

Was für ein wundervoller Tag. In Margaret River sind gerade erst die finalen Heats zu Ende gegangen und schon tippen wir hier fleissig die Zeilen.

Ganz oben stand heute Filipe Toledo und Tatiana Weston-Webb, die beim vierten Stopp der 2021 World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT) siegen konnten. Der Main Break in Margaret River hatte mit 4-6 Fuß eine solide Größe und sorgte so für den perfekten Spielplatz für die Pros.

Für Tatiana Weston-Webb (BRA) war es der zweite CT Sieg ihrer Karriere und das auch noch gegen die 7-mailge WSL Weltmeisterin Stephanie Gilmore. Am Ende war es eine knappe Nummer, der dennoch ein verdienter Sieg.

“I can’t explain how incredible this feels.Steph is one of the best surfers of all time and was always someone I looked up to so much, so it was incredible to come up against her in a Final. You don’t often get to surf against a seven-time WSL Champion so this feels amazing. I’m just thankful I took a win after a second-place finish at the last event.”

so Tatiana nach dem Sieg.

Auf dem Weg zum Podest verwies sie “local hero” Bronte Macaulay im Halbfinale auf Platz 3, die ihrem kürzlich verstorbenen Bruder damit ein Zeichen setzen konnte.

“I want to say that this win is for the Macaulay family. I came up against Bronte earlier today and seeing her show up for her heat was so brave. I can’t imagine what she has been going through. They are an amazing family with so much love and are such a big part of surfing here in the West and my condolences are with them.”

Für Filipe Toledo war es auch mal wieder Zeit ganz oben zu landen. Mit einer 17.33 (von 20 möglichen Punkten), konnte er einen der besten Heat Scores des Events einfahren. Das Ergebnis katapultierte ihn vom 8. auf den 3. Platz im Ranking.

“This has been a really fun week.There have been such amazing waves and amazing surfing from everybody so to come out on top feels so good. This one is for my son Koa, it’s his birthday today and he asked me to win the trophy. I promised him I would and I could not break the promise, so this one’s for you son, I love you. This win will be a huge jump on the rankings for me which I needed. This Tour is all about consistency and if you’re not showing up in the Finals often, you won’t make that Final 5, and that’s my biggest goal for the year, to give myself that chance.”

Auf Platz zwei landete Jordy Smith, der mit den Wellen am Main Break gut zurecht kam.

“What a week. I always enjoy coming to West Aus and it’s because it offers up waves like we’ve had here for this entire contest. I had a good time today and was stoked to make it into a Final for the first time in who knows how long. Next, I just need to win one of these things. I’m just excited to try and keep some momentum and head over to Rottnest Island and hopefully go one better over there.”

So Jordy nach seinem ersten Contest in Australien in diesem Jahr.
