We are stoked to announce the winner of the Carissa Moore Scholarship. Congratulations to Natasha Gouldsbury on being selected to travel to Hawaii and train with Carissa Moore! Natasha, the way that you interpreted the brief and put your all into it gave us full confidence that you will make the most out of your time in Hawaii. Your surfing was a standout and we can’t wait to see you rip over there in the Hawaiian surf!
New Zealand’s Paige Hareb has requalified for the World Surf League’s full championship tour in 2019.
The Taranaki surfer confirmed her place in the elite division with a standout performance in Australia on Monday.
Hareb has had her struggles on the world championship tour (WCT) this year, failing to make it past the second round and being ranked 18th with just one event left in Hawaii later this month.
For years, women’s surfing has been on the rise.
With the likes of six-time world champion Stephanie Gilmore leading the way, the women on the World Surf League Championship Tour have been campaigning for equal pay to that of the men.
Today, World Surf League granted their wish.
