|Ranking Leaders Moore and Toledo Set Themselves Apart
Current ranking leaders Carissa Moore (HAW) and Filipe Toledo (BRA) hold their respective World No. 1 places by the slimmest of margins but sit well within the Final 5 by nearly 10,000 points. Both Moore’s and Toledo’s fantastic showings at the Quiksilver/ROXY Pro G-Land earned them runner-up finishes to garner their third Finals appearances of the season (Toledo’s third-consecutive). For five-time WSL Champion Moore, an event win is the only thing missing in her campaign toward her outstanding sixth World Title.
Jack Robinson and Brisa Hennessy Ready to Strike
Brisa Hennessy’s (CRI) tug-of-war match with Moore for the yellow leader jersey has proven she’s capable of contending with the world’s best and now looks for a second win in 2022 to move back to No. 1 or stay at No. 2 on the rankings. World No. 2 Jack Robinson (AUS) finished with his second-consecutive CT victory, his third-career win, as he returns to Central America in hopes of victory once again. Robinson’s maiden CT win came in Mexico just last year at the right-hand point break of Barra de la Cruz and is all too familiar with world-class right-handers.
