|Weston-Webb Earns Second CT Win for 2022
In her seventh season among the world’s best surfers, Tatiana Weston-Webb (BRA) comes off her strongest showing, ranked second in the world in 2021, and trying to make the rankings Top 5 for a fighting chance at the World Title again.
“I love surfing on my backhand, a lot of people know that, but it’s just been a while since I’ve put it all together and had things go my way,” Weston-Webb said. “This event I just really felt in rhythm and flow and the whole time I was just having a blast, maybe that’s what set me apart.”
With a win early on in Portugal, a couple of Semifinals in G-Land and Rio and her win today, the Brazilian holds the right cards as the tour heads to Tahiti where she has spent time developing a relationship with the Teahupoo lineup. Today’s result will see her move up to third on the rankings before the CT’s final stop.
“We had such perfect waves for this event and I’d like to thank the locals for sharing their lineups with us for a week, it was just phenomenal,” Weston-Webb added. “I’m really excited for Teahupoo but right now I’m just living in the moment here at J-Bay.”
