Sixth world surfing title for Steph Gilmore

Australia's Stephanie Gilmore has won a sixth world surfing title in a dramatic climax to the 2014 women's tour in Hawaii.

Gilmore of Tweed Heads opened the door for compatriots Sally Fitzgibbons and Tyler Wright when she lost the quarter-final of the Maui Pro to American Courtney Conlogue this morning.  

Fitzgibbons was eliminated in the following heat missing her chance to overtake rankings leader Gilmore.  

Tyler won her quarter-final over Lakey Peterson and then her semi-final over South African Bianca Buitendag.  

Tyler could snatch the world title from Gilmore by beating former world champion Carissa Moore in the final and then beating Gilmore in a surf-off for the final.
