Jack Robinson has the chance to take control of the men's standings as the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour returns for its seventh stop of the season in El Salvador, while Olympic champion Carissa Moore will be looking to consolidate her lead in the women's competition.

Scheduled to take place from June 12 to 20, the event be the first time that the Championship Tour has ever visited La Libertad.

Australia's Robinson won his second consecutive leg in Indonesia, following victory at home in Margaret River.

The 24-year-old's Banyuwangi triumph added another 10,000 points to his total to bring him up to 32,160 points, just 80 shy of Brazilian Filipe Toledo's leading tally.

Five-time WSL champion Moore, who represents Hawaii, leads the women's division on 32,095 points despite not winning a single stage so far this season.

She has Costa Rica's Brisa Hennessy on her tail.

Hennessy has slipped to second after two fifth-place finishes in a row, while France's Johanne Defay shot up five places into third following her win at the last leg.

El Salvador held the World Surfing Games last year as well as the World Junior Surfing Championship which ended last week.

Both events were at Surf City - the catch-all name for the breaks including Punta Roca, La Bocana and El Sunzal.

"We got a good recommendation from the surfers who were there last year for the ISA World Surfing Games," said WSL women's commissioner Jessi Miley-Dyer, as reported by El Salvador Info.

"So, when we were looking for a new place to go, this seemed like a good one for us."

Punta Roca boasts a world-class right-hand point with the potential of producing 200-metre rides and huge tubes.
