LEMOORE, California/USA (Sunday, June 20, 2021) -

Johanne Defay (FRA) and

Filipe Toledo (BRA) have won the Jeep Surf Ranch Pro presented by Adobe today, the sixth stop on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour (CT) and the final event ahead of surfing's Olympic debut in Tokyo next month.

Defay defeated the reigning four-time WSL Champion

Carissa Moore (HAW) by less than half a point in a hard-fought Final. The pair of Olympic qualifiers traded eight-point rides but it was Defay's excellent 8.70 that sealed the win. The victory sees Defay move up from fifth to second place in the world and one step closer to securing her spot in the WSL Final 5. Defay's result today is the fourth CT win of her career, her best result of the season and her second Final at the Ranch.

"I'm really impressed with the level of women surfing here at Surf Ranch," said Defay. "Carissa, Sally, and Tati all did a great job. It's the first time I do two finals in a row, and I'm very happy with my results."
