Roxy decided to push the famous Roxy Jam a bit further this year, invite some short board cracks and create a unique, innovative event for the elite of female surfing: the Roxy Pro.
Going down in Biarritz, France from July 11th – 17th, the traditional ASP Women’s Longboard World Championship with icons such as Jennifer Smith and Kassia Meador, is joined by a stop of the ASP Women’s World Tour, assembling the top 17 surfers, including the likes of 4times world Champ Steph Gilmore, our current cover girl Sally Fitzgibbons and wildcard Lee-Ann Curren.
The longboarders will compete in the first of two legs of the World Circuit in Biarritz on the Cote des Basques, whilst the surfers will compete in their penultimate event of the season at nearby Villa Belza, or at one of neighbouring spots, which will have a mobile structure to have the best wave conditions.
And of course they also stay true to their tradition of blending in some culture and art, with a huge free concert at the Port Vieux Beach, on Sat 16th July with Lily Wood & The Prick, The Sounds, and Pendentif as well as an art exhibition by Roxy icons Kassia Meador, Pandora Decoster and others, dedicated to surf culture and with a Californian theme.
