West Aussie surfer Jack Robinson has snuck back into World Title contention after claiming his fifth World Championship Tour victory earlier today at the Shiseido Tahiti Pro.

It was a do-or-die final for Robinson, with victory meaning he is now one of the Final 5 headed to Lower Trestles next month vying for the 2023 World Surf League championship.

Robinson overcame Gabriel Medina in a tense final, which saw him come from behind to just clip Medina, 15.83 points to 15.

The victory came in tricky 5-7 foot swells at Tahiti’s famed left hander, Teahupoʻo.

Earlier in the day American Caroline Marks beat compatriot Caitlin Simmer to claim her own fifth CT victory, with both surfers also headed to the Final 5 competition in September.

The WSL Finals run from September 8-16 at Lower Trestles in Southern California.
