HURLEY EXCELLENCE ON DISPLAY AT THE OI RIO PRO


The HURLEY team dominates both the Men’s & Women’s finals at the Oi Rio Pro.

SAQUAREMA, Brazil, June 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — It was a heater of a finals day for team Hurley at the Oi Rio Pro, held in Saquarema, Brazil about two hours outside of Rio De Janeiro. Three-time event winner (now four-time!) Filipe Toledo originally hails from São Paulo, so it’s no wonder that Toledo had massive fan support on the beach in Brazil. That, paired with his yellow-jersey momentum and knack for Brazilian beach breaks sent Toledo to a place he’s getting more and more familiar with: first. Not only did he take the W in Saquarema, he did it with a perfect 10 — one of his best executed in-contest airs in years.

5x World Champion Carissa Moore is up to her old tricks again, which is to say, winning. In the dying minutes of the Women’s Finals in Saquarema, Moore was in search of a 7.5, which she found (and then some), her heat-winning wave clocking in at a 9.5. Meaning, Moore left the contest much how she started it: in the yellow jersey. 

“What a day for Team Hurley! I got to enjoy the show with a nice cup of coffee and watch Carissa and Filipe, the two most consistent surfers of the season get back on top! Riss nailing the last minute 9.5 had me jumping through the ro of straight into Filipe and one of the biggest backside airs ever — a perfect 10. To say the least, my day was made by 9am

,” said Brett Simpson, Hurley’s head of Sports Marketing. 

With these superior showings, both Moore and Toledo are the first to qualify for the Final 5 event at Lower Trestles. Stay tuned for more action from the WSL as competitors set their sights on the next event, the Corona Open at J-Bay in South Africa, running July 12-21 at worldsurfleague.com
