Moore appeared to be on her way to victory after scoring a 9.0 out of 10 on her first wave in the final, but Moore received a 4.33 on her last wave while Wright was solid on both of hers, receiving scores of 6.83 and 7.83.
Wright takes home $60,000 for her first-place finish, and Moore earns $30,000.
Hawaii surfers Tatiana Weston-Webb, Malia Manuel and Coco Ho were part of a group that tied for fifth place.
