Yesterday Lakey Peterson and John John Florence took out the Margaret River Pro, the fourth stop on the 2019 World Surf League Championship Tour, in six to eight-foot conditions at Main Break.
John John Florence earned his second event title for 2019 after defeating good friend Kolohe Andino in the Final, while Lakey Peterson clinched her first win in the West by taking down Tatiana Weston Webb.
With the first four stops now complete, the world title race is starting to take shape heading into the halfway mark, The Oi Rio Pro.
The 2019 CT rankings will not only decide the year’s World Champions but will also determine the first 18 qualifiers into the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, where surfing will make its Olympic debut. Florence currently leads the rankings on the men’s Jeep Leaderboard and Peterson is gaining momentum with a move up to World No. 6.
