Brazilian pair Tatiana Weston-Webb and Filipe Toledo emerged victorious on an emotion-filled finals day at the World Surf League Championship Tour leg in Margaret River in Australia.

Weston-Webb was crowned champion after posting a winning score of 16.23 points in the final against Australia’s seven-time champion Stephanie Gilmore who notched 15.00.

Weston-Webb's victory came after beating Australia’s Bronte Macaulay, who surfed the semi-final following the sudden death of her brother over the weekend.

"This win is for the Macaulay family," said Weston-Webb.

"I came up against Bronte earlier today and seeing her show up for her heat was so brave.

"I can't imagine what she has been going through.

"They are an amazing family with so much love and are such a big part of surfing here in the West and my condolences are with them."

Toledo claimed his first Championship Tour victory since 2019 after overcoming two South Africans in Matthew McGillivray and Jordy Smith, plus reigning champion Italo Ferreira in the last eight.

In the quarter-finals, Toledo's two-wave score of 13.90 was just 0.17 better than Ferreira's score.

The Brazilian then beat McGillivray in the semi-finals by 15.16 to 13.74 before producing another superb display to defeat Smith by 17.40 to 14.23 in the final.

"This one is for my son Koa, it's his birthday today and he asked me to win the trophy," said Toledo.

"I promised him I would and I could not break the promise, so this one's for you, son, I love you."

Toledo’s victory sees him move from eighth to third in the standings.

The top three positions are filled by Brazilians with Gabriel Medina in pole position followed by world champion Ferreira and then Toledo.

After being forced to withdraw in the quarter-finals due to a knee injury, American John John Florence has slipped to fourth, while Smith's final appearance puts him in fifth.

"This win will be a huge jump on the rankings for me which I needed," added Toledo.

"This tour is all about consistency and if you're not showing up in the finals often, you won't make that final five, and that's my biggest goal for the year, to give myself that chance."

Weston-Webb has climbed to second in the women’s standings, while American Carissa Moore retains her number one spot.

Gilmore has moved up to third with American Caroline Marks hanging onto fourth and Australian Tyler Wright in fifth.
