After a five-day string of lay days the Hurley Pro Trestles and Swatch Women’s Pro at Trestles resumed competition on Friday, Sept. 18 and crowned Mick Fanning (Australia) and Carissa Moore (Hawaii) event champions.

In women’s competition, part-time San Clemente resident, Lakey Peterson, lost out on a pass to the final when South African Bianca Buitendag beat her in the semifinals, 13.27 to 12.93. Two time women’s world champion Moore earned her spot by taking out Australia’s Dimity Stoyle in the semis, 14.27 to 9.60. Moore’s final victory, 16.37 to 13.84 over Buitendag, also earned Moore’s way back to No. 1 atop the World Surf League Women’s Championship Tour standings—a spot most recently held by Orange County surfer Courtney Conlogue (Santa Ana).

San Clemente’s recently transplanted resident Filipe Toledo (Brazil) just missed out on the final after being taken out by Adriano de Souza of Brazil in the semis, 15.46 to 15.27. Fanning made the finals after besting Brazilian, Gabriel Medina, 18.17 to 17.54. Fanning’s 17.44 to 16.44 win in the final over de Souza also resulted in him taking over the No. 1 spot atop the CT ranks. The top spot was last held by de Souza.

Results from the semifinals for both events, along with the new Top 5 lineup in both the men’s and women’s WSL CT are as follows:
