Paige Hareb se­cured a fifth year on the ASP World Tour in Au­gust af­ter surf­ing to fifth place in the Nike US Open of Surf­ing held in Cal­i­for­nia. Locked in equal tenth place with Re­becca Woods go­ing into the event, Paige saw her good friend dumped out in the sec­ond round, break­ing the dead­lock be­fore go­ing on to surf through to the quar­ter­fi­nals where she lost to 2011 World Cham­pion and this year’s run­nerup Carissa Moore. The re­sult meant Paige held tenth place and qual­i­fied for next year’s tour. Paige then went on to place run­ner up at the WQS six-star Paul Mitchell Pro at Ocean­side, Cal­i­for­nia to el­e­vate her to fourth on the WQS with three events re­main­ing. Sarah Ma­son has fin­ished her first year on tour in 13th equal and will not qual­ify for the 2013 World Tour.
