Was This The Best Heat Ever Surfed By A Woman?

Yeah, it was Courtney Conlogue who rang the Bell, and sure, Sally Fitz surfed very well to secure a deserved second place finish… but Carissa Moore, in her quarter-final against arch-rival Steph Gilmore, was the one who had your arm hairs bristling, your pulse racing, your eyes fixed on the screen.

Can you think of another heat in which a female competitor reached such dizzying heights of technical mastery? And let’s include the men in this too. Can you remember another performance so overwhelmingly dominant, where the superiority of one competitor over his or her collective peers was so great? Where you thought, no matter who the opponent had been, no matter how they’d surfed, he or she could not be stopped? Rack your brains!
