The 2023 Hurley Pro Sunset Beach is done and the second stop of the 2023 WSL Championship Tour delivered an exciting finals day in clean six-to-eight-foot surf.

In the men’s Filipe Toledo earned his 13th WSL (World Surf League) Championship Tour win against Griffin Colapinto. The final was a rematch of the 2022 Surf City El Salvador Pro Final and only got decided in the last two minutes when Toledo scored a near-perfect 9.47 earning him the win.

“It means a lot, I worked super hard for this just training and surfing. Last year was fun, and I got what I wanted, which was my Title, and I learned a lot. When it comes to situations like this, I feel like I’m really well-prepared and ready for anything. Griffin Colapinto came out swinging, and I’m just thinking, ‘I’m ready, here we go.’ I knew the right wave would come, it was slow for a lot of the heat, but I could see he was tense having that 9.17. He seemed a little nervous, I don’t know if he was or not, and I stayed calmed and composed and just wait for the wave, then did what I have to do.” Toledo said afterward.

The defending World Champion has had a good start to the season and sits at No. 2 on the rankings heading into Portugal.

Australias Molly Picklum claimed her first CT win in the women’s event after beating Caroline Marks in the final.

“I’m so stoked to take it out and this event is so challenging. I think it’s just never losing your confidence and really believing in yourself the whole way, no matter what it looks like. The level of women’s surfing is insane. You can be on the Challenger Series one year and then win a CT event, so I’m definitely proud of myself for just chipping away even though there are so many setbacks. Moments like these make it all worth it.” Picklum said afterward.
