Kiwi surfer Paige Hareb has finished fifth equal in a six-star world tour event in Mexico.

Hareb reached the quarter finals of the Los Cabos Open after surfing her way through three heats in impressive fashion.

She lost out to fellow women's Dream Tour Top 17 competitor, Australia's Laura Enever, in a hard fought quarter.

The event was a second-tier contest on the international circuit but offered valuable ranking points for aspiring stars and Top 17 members anxious to boost their year tally.

Hareb was in the latter category and her hunger was evident in her strong performance which acted as lead-up event to the looming US Open at Huntington Beach, California, the next stop on the Dream Tour.

The 24-year-old from Taranaki is currently ranked 12th in the world and is eager to perform well in California to boost herself back into the top 10 before the season end.  Only the top 10 ranked surfers gain automatic entry to next year's Dream Tour.

Fellow Kiwis Ella Williams, the current junior world champion, and Arini Mason were eliminated in the early rounds of the event.
