Australia's Stephanie Gilmore has claimed her sixth world title after a nail-biting finish to the ASP women's tour at the Maui Pro in Hawaii.
The 26-year-old was eliminated in the quarter-finals of the season-ending event but managed to hold onto the crown when closest rival Tyler Wright failed to win the final.
The title win followed her triumphs in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012 and leaves her one behind Layne Beachley as the greatest ever women's surfer. Click through Steph's journey from rookie world champ to six-time winner.
