THE Swatch Pro and Hurley Pro at Trestles, Stops number seven and eight of the women’s and men’s World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT), flew through a full day of competition in three-to-four foot (1 - 1.2 metre) conditions at Lower Trestles.

The morning kicked off with the remaining eight heats of men’s round two and then continued with women’s round two and the first two heats of round three.

Reigning WSL champion and current world number one Tyler Wright, from Culburra Beach, will have to deal with elimination round four after an incredible performance from three-time WSL Champion Carissa Moore (HAW).

The superheat witnessed former event winner Moore and Lakey Peterson (USA) trade off excellent scores, but Moore’s 8.83 and 8.40 were too much for the Californian, who could not find the 8.90 needed to take the heat.

Moore also dominated her round two heat against compatriot Malia Manuel (HAW) with a big air for a 7.33 on the single manoeuvre.

The Australians then tied their back-up scores with a 5.50. Callaghan was not able to close the 0.10-point gap to advance through to the next round.
