Congratulations to Steph Gilmore, 2017 #MauiPro Champion!

After starting the year with a win at the #ROXYpro Gold Coast, Steph has bookended the 2017 season in spectacular fashion at Honolua Bay, Hawaii, and in turn claimed her 4th Maui Pro title.

With the first heat of the day against newly crowned Women’s World Champion, Tyler Wright, Steph looked relaxed as she made her way down to the water.

The crowd on the cliff and the fans at home could no doubt tell that it felt like more of a competitive free surf between good friends than a traditional semifinal heat.

Steph found her groove early, scoring the only 9 point ride of the day, which all but sealed her place in the final.

Carrying a renewed confidence as she hit the water, Steph took the lead against Hawaiian, Malia Manuel, into the final heat of the year. With pumping waves rolling through the bay, Honolua became the perfect amphitheater for Steph to showcase the grit and determination that has earned her 6x World Titles. As the siren sounded and the cliff erupted in cheers, Steph’s trademark grin was the perfect ending to a memorable day.

‘This is an unbelievable feeling. And it feels so much better when you see the smiles from the fans and supporters who are there the whole way, cheering on with you. Honolua Bay turned on the magic for us. It’s one of the best feelings in the world, taking off on beautiful long faces in front of the cliffs. Just magic’.
