If you could barely sleep for having so many super-talented world class surfers in your backyard (well kinda) you’re gonna have to wait a while longer as the Roxy Pro ASP Women’s World Tour contest has been put on hold until 4pm French time, so 3pm in the UK. If you’re in town it’s still worth heading down to the site though as the tents are up and the reggae’s blasting!
The first heat will be between Californian Courtney Conlogue (who we interviewed a few weeks ago for Pro Chat, read the piece here), Tyler Wright and Rebecca Woods from Oz.
ps I’ve just read some more details on the Roxy Blog about what exactly Sally Fitzgibbons needs to happen for her to clinch the World Title from the frontrunner Carissa Moore.
“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
If Sally gets 2nd she is still in the running for a World Title
If Carissa gets 5th in France, Sally needs a 2nd or better to still be in the running.
If Carissa gets 9th in France, the title decision goes to the US Open.”
