The 2015 women’s World Championship Tour (WCT) is set. According to ASP rules, the women’s WCT is comprised of its top 10 surfers, the top 6 on the Qualification Series rankings, and one season wildcard. After the conclusion of the final elite Tour event, the Target Maui Pro, the results are in.
On a day that saw a pair of huge upsets with implications for the WCT Title race, the Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal’s dwindling field made the most of Supertubos’ hollow waves. Get the wave-by-wave breakdowns with the ASP Heat Analyzer, and the full recap for Rounds 2 and 3.

The world’s best surfers put everything on the line as they battled the world’s most dangerous wave for an historic Finals day at the Billabong Pro Tahiti, stop no. 7 on the 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour (WCT).
The world’s best surfers returned to the world’s most dangerous wave for the recommencement of stop no. 7 on the 2014 Samsung Galaxy ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), the Billabong Pro Tahiti, this morning and the action reached a fever pitch as the original 36-person field was whittled down to the final 12.
The ASP Top 34 is gearing up to take on Teahupo’o, one of the most unforgiving waves in the world. With its steep, hollow barrels and high-speed takeoffs, it’s also one of the most compelling. Warm up for the competition with the Billabong Pro Tahiti official teaser above, and catch it LIVE on aspworldtour.com, August 15-26.
An awesome first day of competition at J-Bay witnessed standout performances from Jordy Smith, Michel Bourez and Julian Wilson. Kelly looked comfortable out there too. Only top seeds Parko (despite his 9-pointer) and Gabriel Medina stumbled but later both made their Round 2 heats. Stay tuned for the rest of Round 2 first thing tomorrow.
Gabriel dominated the Final of the Fiji Pro. His foamball-wrestling 9.87 put him out of range of Nat Young, who looked like the only guy capable of getting near him this morning. After the shock of seeing Stu Gibson swinging in the breeze, Gabriel had taken off waaaay up the reef, past The Ledge and almost down to Vanuatu. Nat followed. They were miles out of position but Gabriel never wants to give up the first wave of the heat and if that means paddling off to New Caledonia then so be it.
