It's the 12th time in 18 heats between her and Fitzgibbons, that Gilmore has come victorious, including four tournament final final victories.

Gilmore was already on her way to victory when she left on her last wave.

A good wave turned into a perfect one as Gilmore came deep in a barrel to the fans on the beach and left Fitzgibbons in the spotlight.

Fitzgibbons moves to fifth on the rankings after reaching his first finals since 2017 Margaret River Pro.

The 28-year-old had previously overcome Hawaii's Brisa Hennessey in the semi-finals, while Gilmore eliminated Victoria's Nikki Van Dijk.

In men's competition, Kanoa Igarashi made history of becomin the first Japanese surfer to win a world round event.

After stopping the US legendary Kelly Slater's race in semis, Igarashi was too strong for France's Jeremy Flores in the final.

Australian couple Wade Carmichael and Adrian Buchan both fell in the quarterfinals earlier on Saturday.
