Carissa Moore vs. Lakey Peterson | Semifinals, Heat 2 | MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal | 2019

Carissa Moore vs. Lakey Peterson

The women’s second Semifinal was arguably the most important heat of the whole season between Jeep Frontrunner Carissa Moore (HAW) and World No. 2 Lakey Peterson In a remake of their Roxy Pro France Semifinal matchup, this time it was the Californian who got the upper hand early with her attack of the Supertubos lefts to put pressure on Moore. In an unusual turn of events, the ever-so composed Hawaiian seemed affected by the tension as she made a couple of priority mistakes and couldn’t complete her waves, chasing a mid-range 6.74 (out of a possible 10).
