Hawaiians Moore and Payne Crowned 2013 Drug Aware Margaret River Pro Champions

Carissa Moore (HAW) and Dusty Payne (HAW) have both claimed victory at the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro in solid surf today. Both surfers fought through a stacked field of the world’s best to claim their respective wins and etch their names in the history books as winners at the world-class Surfers Point, Margaret River, WA, Australia.

Stop No. 2 of 8 on the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour, the 2013 Drug Aware Margaret River Pro has seen Tyler Wright retain the ASP Women’s World No. 1 position after finishing runner-up to Moore. The rest of the surfers moved and shuffled around the rankings, with last year’s top 4 further stretching the gap between them and the rest.

   

RANDY RARICK: A Lifetime of Surfing and Shaping

Most figures in surfing history tend to fit neatly into one category or another. They are either explorers, shaping virtuosos, big-wave hellmen or solid persons of industry. Randy Rarick spans all these niches and beyond.

Add Joel Parkinson to the long list of Kelly Slater's rivals....in Joels very own backyard.

After barely losing to Parkinson for the 2012 ASP World Title, Slater began his 2013 campaign by unseating his new nemesis on Wednesday in a record book 40-minute final round of the Quiksilver Pro Australia;  the two best surfers in the world traded near-perfect rides in pumping thick hollow four to six-foot surf. This was Slater's 52nd world tour win and his fourth win at the world-famous sand-bottom point break of Kirra on Australia's Gold Coast.

"It was an amazing day, congratulations to Kelly. This is why we surf, this is why we compete," Parkinson said in defeat....
