Gabriel Medina and Sally Fitzgibbons win the Rottnest Rip Curl Search!

Sally Fitzgibbons and Gabriel Medina are the first surfers to win on the Championship Tour at Strickland Bay on Rottnest Island.

With this win, Sally Fitzgibbons moved to second place in the rankings behind Carissa Moore, who lost to Johanne Defy in the semi-finals.
After finishing first and third in Australia, Carissa Moore looks set to still hold the lead heading into the next event.

The win was a great result for Fitzgibbons, who faced Johanne Defai in the final. She is a perennial world title contender, with her previous best finish coming in second place in 2012. He will be a threat at the Rip Curl WSL Finals.

Gabriel Medina maintains a steady lead

Gabriel Medina has established himself as number one, approximately 8,000 points behind world No. 2 Italo Ferreira.

Meanwhile, Morgan Cibilic is currently ranked 5th in the world. Two wins over John John Florence, two semi-finals and one final, an incredible result for a surfer in his rookie year.
