Now she became just the fourth women’s world champion in the last 15 years, because of the dominance of Moore, Wright and Stephanie Gilmore in the sport. “For real, thank you to everyone who has supported me, all this wouldn’t be possible without everyone. My family, they’re everything to me and the fact they’re all here, it’s the biggest dream ever.”, said Marks to the WSL after the win.

Marks was one of the youngest surfers to qualify for the championship tour five years ago. With her world title win, she secured the final spot available for the USA for the 2024 Olympics.
