What an amazing week at the Roxy Pro Biarritz. Team Roxy enjoyed everything there was to enjoy about the quaint French town and surfed and swam their hearts out! Lily Wood and the Prick and the Sounds played a free concert for the town and over 6,000 people came to boogie down!
Team rider Jennifer Smith finished Runner-up on the World Longboard Event as she took down her fellow team rider Kassia Meador in the semi-final in 2-3 foot surf at the Cote d’ Basques.

A shakedown in women’s surfing is happening now..we’re shakin’ people, Sally Fitzgibbons and Carissa Moore are battling out points in a race to the finish of the Women’s World Tour. With only 2 events left on the schedule the competition is heating up! In all five event’s of the Women’s Tour this year it has been either Fitzgibbons or Moore that have taken the event title. The two girls have met each other in three Finals so far, and Sally has taken Carissa out on two of those occasions. Total event win tally this season: Carissa: 3, Sally: 2.
The Battle now moves on to the Roxy Pro Biarritz, France and one of the biggest stories in modern women’s surfing will again be at the forefront of surfing news. If Sally can manage to hold Carissa off the winner’s podium, the race will end in 2 weeks at the last stop in Huntington Beach, California. GO SALLY!!
Here is the breakdown of possible outcomes:
If Carissa gets 1st in France, she clinches the World Title.
If Carissa gets 2nd or 3rd in France, Sally needs to win to still be in the running and World Title in Huntington Beach
