    Australia's TYLER WRIGHT, 17, has pulled off a stunning upset, eliminating world and defending champion CARISSA MOORE (Haw), 19, from quarter finals of the women's world surfing championship event on the Gold Coast in a rematch of last years final. Wright was ferocious in her assault on the waves at Snapper Rocks, posting two excellent scores en route to causing the biggest upset of the event. The loss also means MOORE loses her world number one ranking, at least until the next competition at Bells Beach from April 3rd. Wright, the 2011 ASP Rookie of the Year, has been the form surfer in the event. Wright will lead a rare all-Australian assault on the Roxy Pro semi-finals and final with World No.10 Laura Enever advancing after defeating World No.5 Silvana Lima (BRA) 13.57 to 12.23; World No.2 Sally Fitzgibbons knocked out Malia Manuel (HAW) 17.00 to 12.00; and four-time World Champion Stephanie Gilmore remains a chance to collect her fourth Roxy Pro Gold Coast title after edging out Courtney Conlogue (USA) 16.43 to 16.30. In the semi-finals, Wright will meet Enever and Fitzgibbons will take on Gilmore. A call will be made at 7am tomorrow morning as whether or not competition will resume at Snapper Rocks.

                Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast (Friday, February 24th) Garrett Parkes (Byron Bay, NSW) has won the final Quiksilver Pro event wildcard and will now face up against 11 time world and defending event champion, Kelly Slater (USA) after taking out the Moskova Trials today in stormy 2-3ft waves at Snapper Rocks on Australia’s Gold Coast. 20 year-old Parkes narrowly defeated Christobal De Col (Per) with a total tally of 12.75 (out of a possible twenty). Parkes now faces the daunting task of taking on surfing’s greatest ever competitor in Slater as well as highly touted Californian world tour rookie, Kolohe Andino (USA) in one of the toughest heats of round 1. However Parkes said he hadn’t yet dwelt on the monumental task ahead but was looking forward to the challenge. A more experienced Parkes will be out to improve upon his 2010 defeat by Taj Burrow (Aus) at the Quiksilver Pro. In the Moskova Women’s Trials current ASP Australasian junior champion Philippa Anderson (Merewether, NSW) will get to see her dream come true when she goes up against world and defending event champion Carissa Moore in round 1 of the Roxy Pro. The 20 year-old proved successful in her third attempt at qualifying for the Roxy Pro – a career highlight for the Merewether surfer who dominated the final to finish with heat total of 15.75 out of twenty. Al three of her opponents were left requiring a two wave combination score on the final siren. Organisers are optimistic of commencing competition in the season-opening ASP World Title events tomorrow with a favourable swell outlook at Snapper Rocks.

                    Gold Coast, Australia (Tuesday 8th March, 2011): HAWAIIAN surfer Carissa Moore is the new queen of Snapper Rocks, surging to victory over Aussie rookie Tyler Wright (Lennox Head, NSW) in today’s final of the Roxy Pro presented by Land Rover on the Gold Coast. After first rocketing to stardom when she made the final of the Roxy Pro as a 14-year-old wildcard back in 2007, Moore returned to where it all began and surfed away with the ultimate prize. The 18-year-old now moves to No.1 on the ASP Women’s World Tour rankings, ending more than two years of dominance by four-time world champion Stephanie Gilmore, who had owned top spot since August 2008. Moore said she has always wanted victory at Snapper Rocks. In a breakthrough day for women’s surfing, massive scores and cutting edge manoeuvres dominated the final day and young Moore reigned supreme. Moore posted a combined two-wave score of 15.34 to 16-year-old Wright (Lennox Head, NSW) in the decider with 14.37. The final reached fever pitch when Moore used her priority to spoil what would have been a near certain perfect 10-point barrel ride for Wright and ultimately seal the win. The victory is Moore’s fourth on the ASP World Tour, including wins in New Zealand and Portugal last season en route to finishing the year No.3 in the rankings. For rising star Wright, a second-place finish in her first event as a full-time competitor on the World Tour was beyond her wildest dreams. Earlier in the day, top seed Gilmore showed tremendous heart to advance all the way to the quarterfinals, but her fairytale comeback did not eventuate. Competing in her first contest since she was assaulted at her Tweed Heads home last December, Gilmore was the sentimental favourite to win the event. But the three-time Roxy Pro champion was stopped in her tracks by Sydney rookie Laura Enever (Aus), who turned in a red-hot performance to cause a massive upset. Gimore said defeat was hard and put it down to mental stress rather than to the fractured wrist. Showing the style that led her to a world pro junior title, Enever finished with a combined score of 15.67 compared to Gilmore with 12.50.
