Tatiana Weston-Webb Rules Margaret River Pro 2021

posted in: Surf Info

MARGARET RIVER, Western Australia, Australia (Monday, May 10, 2021) It was an emotion-filled Finals day as Brazil’s Tatiana Weston-Webb swept the podium the Boost Mobile Margaret River Pro presented by Corona in clean, rippable four to-six foot Main Break. From the heart shown in the water to the love and compassion of the local surf community back on the beach, here’s how it all went down:

Weston-Webb found her way into the Final against seven-time World Champion Stephanie Gilmore after advancing passed local hero Bronte Macaulay in the Semifinals, who was still very much morning the recent passing of her brother, Jack. Despite the family tragedy, the result is Macaulay’s best-ever result at Margaret River, which is just down the coast from her home in Gracetown.

Weston-Webb, who found herself in her second Final in as many events, put on a gritty, full-rail performance against Gilmore to take her first Championship Tour victory of 2021.

“This win is for the Macaulay family,” Weston-Webb said afterwards. “I came up against Bronte earlier today and seeing her show up for her heat was so brave. I can’t imagine what she has been going through. They are an amazing family with so much love and are such a big part of surfing here in the West and my condolences are with them.”

With four of the 2021 Championship Tour events now in the books, we continues to see all kinds of movement on the WSL Leaderboard. For the women, Weston-Webb now slides into number two in the rankings, while Carissa Moore retains her number one position. Rounding out the Final Five, Stephanie Gilmore moves into third with Caroline Marks hanging onto fourth and Tyler Wright in the fifth spot.
