Caroline Marks takes on Tatiana Weston-Webb in the final of the Rip Curl Narrabeen Classic.
Marks Climbs To Number Two In The World
There’s a new World Number Two, and she’s coming for the Leader’s Jersey currently worn by Carissa Moore. Caroline Marks defeated Tatiana Weston-Webb in a final which came down to wave selection.
Weston-Webb has been one of the fastest, most dynamic surfers of the event, but she was left chasing a 5.54 needed in the last ten minutes of the heat, with Marks in the lead.
It wasn’t a question of her surfing, but rather a wave with a steep enough section to put her forehand carves on display. Some of the waves were flattening out, and it was only the ones which really stood up which could offer the score required.
Marks on the other hand found the right canvases to really open up, in what was the first all-goofy foot final on the Women’s Tour since Honolua Bay in 2006.
"I’m just so grateful to be here, the crowd has been amazing. I don’t even know what to say, I’m over the moon," Marks said.
